Built on a rocky islet in St Aubin's Bay, off the south coast of Jersey (UK) Elizabeth Castle defended Jersey for more than 300 years. The castle is accessible at low tide either on foot or the castle ferry which will transport you across the bay to and from the castle.
Work began on the castle in the 1590s and it was home to Sir Walter Raleigh while he was Governor of Jersey. The future King Charles II sought refuge at Elizabeth Castle during the English Civil War.
In the foreground are members of the "1781 Jersey Militia", 4th Regiment, 2nd Battalion (St Lawrence). They are named for the date of the Battle of Jersey which took place on 6 January 1781. When a French force landed at La Rocque (Jersey east coast) and proceeded into St Helier where the Battle took place in the Royal Square, where the strike of musket shot can still be seen today on the walls of buildings. These men wear the uniform of the St Lawrence Battalion (Jersey Militia) who fought alongside the British garrison regiments who together successfully defeated the French.
Recorded on a very overcast day, the arrival of light rain shortly after this precluded any further images.
