Guided walk to the Pinnacle (Le Pinacle) and Canal de Squez:

Sunday 12th July, Guided walk to the Pinnacle (Le Pinacle) and Canal de Squez, lead by John Clarke

 

On Sunday afternoon eighteen gathered at the car park near the CIOS site known as Batterie Moltke above L’Etacq, for this short walk to the rock stack known as the Pinnacle where traces of occupation through many ages including a Gallo-Roman Temple are to be found.

 

After an explanation of the site given by John  Clarke, and the visit of an aerial spectator, we descended the steep slope to view what remains, before the scramble back up.

 

Finds from here have included flints, hammers, rubbers, polishing stones, a copper arrow head, bronze spear head, wheel-turned pottery and a Roman coin.

 

We then moved further north along the cliff path to the area of Canal de Squez, where once again John enlightened the audience about finds recovered in this area and the various studies and digs undertaken.
