The largest of the Channel Islands, Jersey is situated 85 miles from the English coast and 14 miles from France. Even though it occupies just 45 square miles, the island has an abundance of history and culture, much of which stems from English and French influences. Notably Jersey, together with the other Channel Islands, was occupied for five years by the enemy during the Second World War. Today, it is a popular destination for holidaymakers who are attracted by its location, heritage and stunning coastal scenery.


In this book, local author and Blue Badge Guide Tracey Radford presents an engaging portrait of fifty of the island’s buildings and landmarks. Featuring many eras and a wide variety of structures and architectural styles, the buildings have been specifically chosen to create a framework around which a chronological exploration of Jersey’s development and story can be told. The places range from churches to castles, follies to forts and wartime sites to lighthouses. Each building’s description will give readers a valuable insight into the island’s past and – consequently - its present.


Illustrated throughout, this accessible and informative guide will be of immense interest to residents and visitors alike.
