The National Trust Open Day at La Cotte Guard House attracts several visitors
by Jeff Hathaway

DONATED in 1978 this site is now part of the Portelet Common Nature Reserve.

The Guard House enjoys magnificent views across St Brelade's Bay and L'Ouaisne Common and was originally constructed in 1759 as a defensive battery and magazine.

Below the small building lies La Cotte de St Brelade, owned by the Societe Jersiaise, an archaeological site of international importance. Access to the cave is now prohibited, however Jersey Heritage kindly put together a small exhibition inside the Guard House about this unique Paleolithic site for the National Trust's Open Day on 10th September. Despite the bad weather La Cotte attracted several visitors.
