The clog as emblem
Tac-tac-tac... a noise repeats itself among the trees that are more than a hundred years old. It's just a woodpecker, but you can almost hear the sound of the forest workers who lived here over a century ago.
A former stronghold of clog-makers and stone-cutters, the Coatloc'h forest is home to many species of tree. A trace of this activity remains today with the reconstruction of a clog-makers' hut in the heart of the forest, close to the forest house dating from 1838. The presence of numerous beech trees and granite quarries favoured the establishment of these two activities.
A place steeped in history, as evidenced by the presence of a feudal motte, the site is also renowned for its many legends. From the arrival of Nominoë, the first king of Brittany, to that of Duchess Anne, there are many stories to tell about this forest.
