Tom Bunting, Blue Badge Guide.
A guided walk about life during the German Occupation.
Take a stroll through beautiful St Peter’s Valley as you delve into life in Jersey when it was occupied in World War II. What was life like for everyday people? What did they eat? How did they know what was going on in the outside world? The walk takes you past occupation relics on country lanes, up to the high woodland area of Les Gellettes, which had lain undisturbed for 60 years – until Channel Four’s Time Team came to excavate in the spring of 2010. You will see the original trenches and gun emplacements built by the occupying forces, hearing all about the excavations, before finally ending up at the famous Jersey War Tunnels.
Meet at the Gunsite Café, Beaumont, St Peter and finish at The Jersey War Tunnels.
