Walk around St Meen – Day 14

We had visited three churches – Locmélar, Bodilis, and Folgoët – enjoyed a coffee, and now it was time for a walk! Today the excellent Wendy Mewes guided us around Saint Méen – a short, quiet countryside amble – we could have been in England.

St Méen (d.617) was born in Gwent, South Wales, and came to Brittany with St Samson. Like many of the Saints he was renowned as a healer. He founded a Mission Centre in Brittany and then a Foundation which became the Abbey of St Méen. He is remembered in Brittany, Cornwall, and Wales.

St Méen has the usual facilities of a small Brittany village –

Once outside the village the walk was along green lanes, amongst the trees, and past farms and fields – quiet and relaxing.
