Jersey

Jersey pictures. Jersey is an island off the northern coast of France; it is owned by the United Kingdom, but has a lot of independence in managing its own affairs. It's an extremely beautiful place (especially for cycling and walking), and an interesting mixture of British and French influences.

Jersey

Portelet Bay on the southern shore of Jersey. The small island with the tower is the resting place of a sea captain who wasn't allowed to land after a voyage because he was suspected to have the plague.

Most of Jersey's inland consists of such quiet an beautiful country lanes

A bicycle hire place. Cycling is a highly recommended way to see the island as many of the roads have very little traffic, and there's a well-marked cycling trail network (as seen on the map in the photo)

It's a pound. It's got the Queen on it. But it's also in French! (Plus a local language, Jèrriais)

Nazi fortress - when the Nazis invaded Jersey during WWII (the Channel Islands were the only part of the UK that they ever invaded), they built a series of fortresses around the island to defend it
