Gorges de Toul Goulic

A large group enjoyed sunny weather for a walk in the Gorges de Toul Goulic, through woods teeming with wild flowers and bird song. Afterwards we went up to the barrage and then to St- Antoine where we had a very warm welcome from the owners of the chanvrière, refreshments and the chance to buy products made from hemp in the shop - some beautiful clothes, oils, chocolate, soaps and fabric. They also opened the chapel for viewing and gave us a demonstration of how the fibres of hemp are obtained. Highly recommended visit as part of a day out, maybe combined with a picnic at the near-by reservoir and a visit to the church at Lanrivain.
