The lights of the Channel Islands

The Channel Islands, like the Isle of Man, are Crown Dependencies. There are two Bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey, the latter comprising the islands Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm.

Most of the lighthouses of the Channel Islands are maintained by Trinity House.

There are plenty of ways to reach the Channel Islands.  You can take a ferry or fly from various destinations that link to the islands.

If you are lucky you may pass Casquets Lighthouse en route.  The oldest working lighthouse in the UK; established in 1724, three separate towers were established to make it distinguishable.   Today there are still three towers, though only one is operational, with its red and white bands.
