The Geology of St Helier : Guided Walk

The Geology of St Helier : Guided Walk

From Easter this year the Parish has provided a series of free weekly two hour guided walks open to all comers. The aim is to encourage a greater knowledge of the Parish's rich history for the benefit of parishioners, as well as supporting Jersey's tourism industry - which will also assist the town's retail and hospitality sectors. The programme of walks has been devised by Tom Bunting, whose 'Murder, Muck and Mayhem' walk has been enjoyed by hundreds over the years, and will feature some of the Island's experienced and qualified Blue Badge Guides as well as experts on St Helier's maritime history and wartime experiences.

Join tour guide Nicky Mansell for 'The Geology of St Helier' on Thursday 5th September. This walk is going to try to uncover what lies underneath St Helier. You will discover why the largest town on the Island developed where it did, following the coast round to the harbour and to Fort Regent and the ramparts, and searching for clues in the rocks. On the return walk you'll look at the materials which have been used in many of the buildings from the Town Church to Liberty Wharf and other gems.

These walks are proving extremely popular so don't miss out - please search for 'St Helier guided walk' at www.eventbrite.com to book your space.

For more information on any of the walks please telephone Tom on 07797 780868.
