From Easter this year the Parish is providing a series of free weekly two hour guided walks which will be 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 Jean Trevelen for 'The Saint, the Fish and the Rose' on Thursday 4th April. Learn about the Dolmen de la Ville, otherwise known as the Druids' Temple - one of St Helier's earliest churches. See the impact St Helier's 12th Century Abbey had on the town. Discover the political differences that led to the establishment of St Paul's. Visit the Town Church, St Thomas' and the St Helier Methodist Centre to see for yourselves the impact these different denominations had and still have on our town and Island.
No booking is necessary - simply turn up at the Town Hall on the day for a 10.30am start.
(Please note there will be no walk on Liberation Day.)
For more information on any of the walks please telephone Tom on 07797 780868.
