The largest of the British Channel Islands, Jersey is the most southerly island of the British Isles. It is located 84 miles south of Portland, in Dorsetshire, but only about 15 miles west of the coast of France. Due to its unique location in the Bay of St Malo, not only does the island experience a very temperate, almost Mediterranean climate, but it grows and shrinks twice a day as the tide ebbs and flows in excess of 40 feet with one of the highest tidal ranges in the world. Despite its compact size, Jersey possesses a very fertile, lush and beautiful land and seascape. It also has a very rich and varied history which stretches back over many centuries and has left its mark on the island from prehistoric, medieval and Victorian times through to today's modern development and expansion. This thrilling visual tour of the southern half of Jersey will surprise and delight anyone who knows and loves the island.
