St. Peter Port, Guernsey

Town Church, St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands

A rather handsome church dating to the 13th century, but much amended in more recent years stands at one end of the beautiful little town of St. Peter Port, the capital of the island of Guernsey.  It has associations with Victor Hugo who lived many years on Guernsey, his house which is nearby is a museum.

It is familiar from many photos during the German Occupation in World War II when a swastika was often flown from its tower.  Happier times later saw a return to British Rule.
