Mélanie Cavey- Bronze Guide 2020.
A ONCE ENDANGERED CASTLE TO THE GOLDEN SANDS OF LONGBEACH
Great for all those who want to know more about this iconic corner of our Island!
Starting with views to Normandy a history of world politics; enterprising commerce and wartime strategy will unfurl.
Be amazed by stories of the majestic but once endangered Mont Orgueil; the scam of the tax dodging cows and the Battle of the Oyster Shell.
We will recall the once thriving ship building industry and expanding village; the busy Eastern Railway and commercial port and more recently the menacing WW2 defences lining the golden sands of Grouville Bay, and the prison camp beyond.
Ample photo stops along the way!
Duration: approx. 2 hours
Distance: approx. 1.5 miles.
Bus Routes = 1,1a, 2, or 13.
Apart from the short but steep hill walk down from the castle green the walk is on the flat.
