St Peter Port Harbour

The harbour of St Peter Port was substantially enlarged and remodelled during the second half of the nineteenth century. Until that time Castle Cornet was isolated on a small offshore islet and had commanded the approach to the town since the twelfth century. The site of the early harbour has been obliterated by the nineteenth century quayside and later marina developments, in the centre foreground of the photograph.

The aerial photograph was taken by local photographer Brian Green, and shows a particularly high tide.
