Jersey, Britain's 'jewel in the crown', is the largest of the Channel Islands and sits just over 14 miles from the west Normandy coastline. Once part of the Duchy of Normandy, it chose to become loyal to the British Crown in 1204 and broke its links with France at that time. Despite repeated attempts by France in the past to regain possession, Jersey has maintained its independence ever since. Just 9 miles long and 5 miles wide, Jersey is famous for its finance industry and tourism. Despite its small size, it has a population of approximately 90,000, and yet there is still much of the lush countryside left untouched. The reader is taken on a visual tour of Jersey's famous rugged north coastline, with its picturesque little bays and harbours tucked in close to the imposing cliffs.
