Le Creux ès Faies is a well preserved Megalithic passage tomb dated between 3,000 to 2,500 BC.
The passage is affectionately known as the entrance to the Fairy Kingdom in Guernsey folklore. It was thought that fairies came out at midnight on moonlit nights to dance on the Mont Saint and Le Catioroc. Soldiers barracked at L’Eree also used the tomb as a den, so to stop this it was filled with rubble by the Officers.
The tomb is located on a small headland to the north of L'Eree Bay on Guernsey's west coast. With an excellent information board near the entrance, Le Creux es Faies is well worth a visit.
Easily accessible from a nearby car park, the entrance to the grave is always open, so can be entered if you’re brave enough…
