Saint-Just, a very ordinary and comfortably pleasant French village, is the guardian to a wild and wacky ribbon of monuments which will have me scratching my head quizzically for the rest of my life. Nothing here makes any sense at all as the path to the west of the village leads you on a megalithic mystery tour.

Each monument on its own is intriguing … beguiling … but together, so close together they become a megalithic headf*ck.

We parked to the west of the village and followed the ample and informative signs which led us under the pines towards the Cojoux heathland glowing golden with gorse and ringing with birdsong. Apart from us, there was no one else around at all. The monuments - and the birds - just kept on coming.

Chateau Bû (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

Fortunately, some enterprising soul has slighly vandalised the chainlink fence next to the locked gate opposite the chamber entrance. There's now enough room to shove a camera lens through, or for those individuals with slightly less respect for authority, it might be possible to utilise the damaged areas of fence as footholds for climbing over the top. Obviously, I'd never recommend anything so foolhardy, but a little leprachaun told me that it's a very easy climb and well worth the effort. Posted by Mustard

'Pres de Treal' (Allee-Couverte) — Fieldnotes

Access: On verge of farm road just south of Treal passage grave.

What looks suspiciously like a very trashed passage grave. If not, one stone certainly looks like a menhir!

Could of course be field clearance, but surely not the menhir-like stone at least. Couldn't find any trace in books or on a quick web search.

'Treal menhir' (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

Access: In garden of house by start of path through woods to the passage grave.

A nice menhir that you can't miss if visiting the passage grave. I've not seen it in any of my research, but it 'looks' genuine!
