The magnificent Channel island of Jersey

  • Jersey: the Channel Island is one of the areas in the UK that can boast the most hours of annual sunshine. Not that Dave Cowburn cares very much. He works in the dark, cool ducts of an old bunker from the Sec-ond World War. Here, he breeds turbot, and is very successful at it, too.
    The "Jersey Royal", the regal potato, has been grown on the island since 1880, fertilized with seaweed from the surrounding ocean. In the third generation, Christine Hellio manages approximately 20 hectares on the coast. "The potato is our most important export commodity", she says. It is harvested by hand, as machines cannot be used on the steep fields. The price is quite regal, too: One kilogram costs 6 Euros.
    Hugh Gill is one of around 240 voluntary police officers on Jersey. The Honorary Police is regarded as the oldest organised police system in the world. Hugh works for them for one week every month. On the green lanes, the streets of Jersey, the speed limit is 15 miles per hour.
    Jersey has an immense tidal range and with up to 13 metres difference, it is the world's third largest. This is good for a rarity: the Ormer - one of the world's most expensive species of snail.

    Bruh I live in Jersey, the housing is stupidly expensive. A house that would cost 120k in England costs 900k in jersey. The hash and md is stunning though :)

    Jersey is a bit different from East St. Louis. For example, this program lasted almost 45 minutes and there wasn't one shooting or arson that occurred during all that time. I should move there.

    Jersey & the other Channel Islands are the sole surviving remnants of the Duchy of Normandy under British authority. The title of Duke of Normandy has continued almost uninterrupted under the rule of the British monarch from William in 1066 to Elizabeth II - and yes - she is the Duke of Normandy as there is no Duchess. France never took possession of the islands, even with the confiscation of the continental part of the Duchy in 1204 which had a French Duke of Normandy sporadically until 1792.

    I live here but there's nothing magnificent about it. Shitty weather and expensive to live.
    Safe to walk but immigrants can be seen everywhere especially in St Helier. I guess it's fun to visit but kind of harsh to live here . It becomes annoying pretty quick.
    St Helier is clean but boring as fuck . Not much to do or see here. I remember living in London was much much more fun. Jersey is for old people.

    I was born on the Island. We lived in a few parishes during my younger years there, my mum ran a guest-house in St Aubins overlooking the harbour, we lived in St Brelades Bay for a few years which I remember being very much like the hotel and touristy beach in the summer. My dad was born there and my mum moved over there. We moved over to Wales then but me and my partner dream of going back there someday. I miss it a lot

    • KumaBean

      The guest house that your Mum ran, was it on the bulwark next to the boat shop, the guest house being a relatively tall building with eight windows on the front facade, by any chance?

      @SpitfireJJ I bet its changed a lot in the years Ive been away. I was about 7 yrs old when we left. I have good memories as a kid, and family over there too. Since I've been in Wales I've missed my grandparents mostly, more than the Island itself. I spent a lot of time with them as a kid, one has died and the other is not far off, I'll probably not get to see her before she goes either, but aside from that theres a lot more opportunities and things to offer over here, and if my parents hadn't moved back then I reckon I would have left the Island by now anyway for Uni and my career. I might go back there later on in life to relax in my old age some day

    this video is absolutely shit. it makes it look like the honour police are our police force. they are just arseholes who do it for the power (which they have little). they tend to deal with road side checks and that's all. the States of Jersey Police force (which has an armed response unit, bomb disposal unit and K9 unit) deals with everything else. we also have a Police Court which deals with petty crimes and the Royal Court which deals with serious crimes.

      The best way to put it, is that Jersey and all the other crown territories are independent for 95%, but on certain aspects like military, defense and some international stuff, they are dependent from the United Kingdom. Simply put, the islands are independent but act like some sort of a satellite state of the United Kingdom. Independent but not quite like a regular independent state.
