I have taken a few photographs of these remains and during my last visit to Jersey managed to get a sunset. Grosnez Castle is located near the cliff edge and turned out to be quite a cool windy evening so do take a coat just...More

Little remains of the castle itself apart from a few ruins so Grosnez is little more than a curiosity or a detour from journeys elsewhere. Nevertheless, the views from this corner of the island across the sea are spectacular, particularly on a clear day when...More

Off the beaten track past the racecourse down at the edge of the cliffs. A nice little castle, well what's left of it and some stunning views over to Sark and Guernsey on a good day. Make it part of your cliff top walk.

If your in this corner of Jersey this is worth a visit, especially on a nice day. Lovely views, wild flowers, cliffs and seabirds. The castle is a ruin but very peaceful.
