The origin of the Tern earth pyramids probably dates back to the year 1837. Following a violent storm, the river Tern carried away 3 houses, 16 mills, 13 crushers, a forge, and a sawmill. 13 people died. It is likely at that time that the slope began to break up. In the decades that followed, erosion affected two different masses of rubble differently: the material interspersed with stone blocks formed the classic earth pyramids, whereas the material containing hardly any stones, only formed ridges and burrs.
