Dehus Dolmen

Dehus Dolmen is a prehistoric passage grave approximately 10 metres in length. One of the capstones has a remarkable carving of a man featuring a bearded face, arms and hands, with what appears to be a strung bow, and a series of symbolic designs. The carving is affectionately known as The Guardian of the Tomb.

Large quantities of finds dating from 3,500 - 2,000 BC have been found at the site, making it one of Guernsey's oldest attractions.

How To Find It

Find Dehus Dolmen by travelling east from L’Ancresse turn left into the road just in front of Sarnia Controls. Or, travel north from Bordeaux Harbour for about a quarter of a mile and look out for the sign on the lamp post on the right at the first corner. The site is about 150m on the left. There is parking for one car to the right of the mound.
