This first photograph is not, as an experienced fogou hunter might think, the entrance to a creep, but is a very small drain on one side of the passage. We visited on a bright October day and the photographs were washed out by the bright sunshine. This, however, gives you a flavour of the stonework.
For once, we argued with the illustration of the village in Belerion, Craig Weatherhill's excellent book as we think he understates the number of houses. We think the fogou is a bit further from the main SE cluster than it looks.
Once found, the fogou is instantly recognisable to the experienced hunter. It is an above-ground and of the same style as Boscaswell, a few miles away. Its entrance is unusual. There appears to be a centre-post folllowed by a sharp right turn into the main passage. This then curves away to the north-east as shown in the plan. There is no obvious low doorway, constriction point or trip hazard but all may have been lost over the years.
Left: the entrance post is obvious. The main passage is in the left foreground.
Right: the main passage is outlined sharply by the October sun
