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 Christine Herbert for 'Up North! Around the Green Lungs of St Helier' on Thursday 16th May. Away from the hustle and bustle of the shopping precinct, markets and financial district, St Helier is a parish of contrasts, extending up into open fields through picturesque valleys and green lanes. This walk takes in a former military parade ground, St Helier's newest green space and the former home of the Jersey cow, before following a water course through woodland and lanes to reach some fine views over the town landscape.
No booking is necessary - simply turn up at the Town Hall on the day for a 10.30am start.
For more information on any of the walks please telephone Tom on 07797 780868.
