More Information

Follow the traces of Jersey’s creation near the South Pole to its present northern latitude over more than 600 million years. How did the Ice ages form the land where mammoths and woolly rhinos roamed Jersey’s tundra? Why was St Aubin’s Harbour once the most important on the Island? Find the answers hidden in the rocks on a stroll across the beach.

This Geowalk starts in St Aubin’s Harbour, in the carpark by the Royal Channel Islands Yacht Club.
