Le Trepied Dolmen at Le Catioroc

La Croix Martin, St Saviour, GY7


This prehistoric passage grave with spectacular views over Perelle Bay. It was built during the Neolithic period (c.4000 - 2500BC) and was in use until the Late Bronze Age c.1000BC.

Successive burials or cremations were deposited within the chamber together with grave goods which include pottery, flint and stone tools. It became notorious during the 17th Century witch trials as a meeting place for witches’ covens where the devil, disguised as a black goat, sat enthroned on the capstone.
