Parish Close Outing - Wednesday 21st

On Wednesday January 21st we have an outing (by car - sharing if possible) to visit some of the finest parish closes in Brittany. This spectacular form of architectural ensemble is a particular feature of northern Finistere, although there are a few exceptional examples elsewhere. Lots of interesting and amusing details to spot as well as all the historical significance - you won't find more impressive testaments of simple faith in the region.
We meet in St Thegonnec at 11am and will be moving on to several other locations. Information sheets provided. Weather permitting there will be a short forest walk, entirely optional, in the afternoon. Bring picnics, but a nice salon-du-thé in a bakery will be open on our route about lunch-time. Everyone welcome.
