The Saints' Shore Way blog

Please have a look at the new blog, even though it is only a baby blog as yet. Now that the text of the guidebook is almost finished, it will be updated much more regularly with articles, photos, etc. Once the Saints Shore Way book is out in April, we hope to add personal experiences of walkers on the route during the rest of the year, so contributions will be welcome. The SSW runs from Roscoff to Lannion, via Morlaix, along the fabulous coast path. or use link opposite.

In Morlaix

We had a very nice walk in Morlaix yesterday, mainly around the stepped passageways (venelles) of Le Creou, where there was a rash of religious foundations in the early 17th century.

Morlaix Walk, Tues 15th, 2pm

We have a town walk in Morlaix on Tuesday afternoon. Meet under the viaduct at 2pm.

Happy new year to all Brittany walkers. We have a town walk in Morlaix (pictured) on Tuesday January 15th at 2pm and a beautiful, easy lakeside route at Lac Drennec on Wednesday February 13th, also at 2pm. Some early chances to practise those 'more exercise' resolutions in good company.
