Around the Channel Islands
Mere mention of the Channel Islands seems to bring a sparkle to every eye – young or old. Visitors invariably come back time and time again, for there is much to discover apart from the traditional holiday activities of swimming, snorkelling, enjoying beaches or exploring caves.
Prize-winning author Catherine Rothwell shows her love of these islands by seeking out so much interesting history. Along with her stunning selection of historic images, she describes in great detail the customs and traditions, events, landmarks, street and coast scenes and people going about their business in days gone by.
Dedicated to the late John Charles Houghton who loved the Channel Islands of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm it is designed to appeal to visitors and islanders alike, this is an exceptional book to treasure.
