Jersey is the largest of the British Channel Islands and is just 14 miles away from the French coast. Once part of the Duchy of Normandy, it became independent from France in 1204 and has governed itself ever since. St Helier is the historic capital of Jersey and the centre of its government. Named after its Patron Saint, Helier, the town has grown from a small fishing and agricultural hamlet hugging the seashore, to a bustling port and holiday resort.St Helier has a rich heritage and can even boast in having a battle fought in its town square. Royal Square, as it is now called, is where the States Chamber and ancient Royal Court House are to be found. Once a walled town, the area has expanded into a modern metropolis, but still retains a charm all of its own. This development through time has been traced and captured in this fascinating and unique book.
