At last a day of sunshine and virtually no wind. A visit to Grosnez this morning was particularly pleasing. Unlike other Jersey castles the one at Grosnez is almost impossible to sea from a kayak, perched on top of the cliffs of the north west corner of the Island.
Probably built in 1330 it is protected on 3 sides by steep granite cliffs and on the landward side by walls and a ditch. It was probably demolished in the 1460’s. A lighthouse marks the point today but in the 19th Century there was a signal station here for communicating with Guernsey.
