Granite Guernsey

Guernsey

Guernsey

This pretty postcard from Guernsey obviously comes from Monica! Monica tells me that just about everything in Guernsey is made from granite. She tells me that it is luckily also found locally. At the top left is a Napoleonic “Martello Tower” and there are apparently 16 of those on the island. At the top middle one can see the war memorial in St Peter Port. At the top right is the Millennium Megalith. At the bottom left once can see a neolithic dolmen (burial chamber,) of which there are several on the island. And finally at the bottom right we have Stonehenge suffering from island dwarfism. Nah, I’m just messing with you. That would be the Fairy Ring at Pleimont. Thank you for the postcard Monaco!
