Rennes-Carhaix road        Segment 4        from km 44,2 to km 57,5

Place la Maison Rouge - Place le Plessis (Matriniaca)

next

This segment begins with the third Ford on the River Meu and continues on the embankment of the dam that forms Lake Loscouët-sur-Meu.


Then follows a path part in the country side, identified only by cadastral boundaries, and part on local roads. It passes close to the Chapel of Saint Brieuc-des-Bois and reaches place le Plessis near Merdrignac.


In this locality, for a 20 km radius, significant archeological testimony have been found years ago before the study of J.-Y. Eveillard (e06 - Eveillard), confirming that this locality was a major station stop (Mansio Matriniaca)(*).
