Documentaries. Huelgoat (Finistère).
Instructional series, interior Brittany, Huelgoat (granitic island). Rain water break up granite; the corners and the edges of blocks are blunted, clay is fomed and sand comes into being; what remains instead is rounded blocks. The land has the shape of domes sprinkled with rocks half-buried under brooms and heather; depressions are humid and marshy. The blocks of granite are round "like marbles". Note the enormous mass of these piled rocks (2 children see each ther under the big block). The Household of the Virgin - the sands were brought by waters; the blocks are piled on top of one another. Cascade of St. Herbot - The waters of the Elez flowing from Aulne, cross the doorstep of granitic rocks. The Shaking Rock (7 meters long) - the disintigrated rock was taken away: the shaking rock is in equilibrium over a tilted plane. The Menhir of Kermpeulvan - a standing stone (North of Heulgoat). HUELGOAT - note the forest that surrounds the granitic area. The forest - firs, birches, and beeches. An old Breton woman spinning wool on the banks of the pond of Huelgoat. The region to the north of Huelgoat; note the little fields surrounded by levees of earth and hedges; in the disntance the mountains of Arree. The granitic massif of Huelgoat is surrounded by uncultivated lands (sandstone, foliated rocks) and limited to the north west by the mountains of Arree.The mountain Saint-Michel-de-Brasparts (altitude 391m.) is the tallest point in these mountains, wasted by erosion. At the foot of the mountain Saint-Michel-de-Brasparts, are marshes from which one extracts peat. Here is land covered by gorses that the Bretons reap to feed their cattle. END
