Guernsey, like its neighbour Jersey and the smaller islands nearby is an independent place just off the coast of Brittany, France. It is, however, part of the British Isles, making for a unique mix of French and British culture.
A type of prehistoric carved stone not seen elsewhere in Britain. Other examples are seen in continental Europe.
...and a Stone Circle! Being a densely populated island, most standing stones on Guernsey are no longer there, here are a few that are.
Number of accesses since 1st November 1999:
Most of the tombs are bottle shaped, with no side chambers
Two books are inexpensive and essential purchases if you plan to explore these sites. Both are available in bookshops in St Peter Port, the island's capital.
I don't currently have any pages on Jersey. Here is a good site to look at: Dolmens in Jersey
