La Hougue Bie

A quiet Sunday.  La Hougue Bie is one of those lovely little Heritage sites that some times gets overlooked or forgotten in the greater scheme of things. In this one site you can enter a Neolithic tomb, climb to a medieval chapel and drop into a German bunker. Atop the mound you can see for miles providing a great view of the Island  but down below in dappled shade are hidden delights.

Jane Warren warmly greets all comers and provides the historical detail behind the site.

Acting Neanderthal Aaron (Student lawyer) shows how basic coil pots were made or corn was ground.

A rural idyll that still offers enlightened access whilst retaining a real homemade feel.

A beautiful picnic area.
