St Catherine's Bay from the air
St Catherine's Bay from the air
Viewed from the north-east on a flight from Gloucester to Jersey.
The huge breakwater is 600 metres long and was finished in 1855.
It was built as the northern breakwater of a projected "refuge" harbour for the Royal Navy.
The planned Southern breakwater was never completed.
On the left of the picture is the magnificent castle at Gorey and the Royal Bay of Grouville.
