Guernsey's Heritage

Elizabeth College (Moss print)

People have lived in Guernsey for at least 12,000 years and some of the rocks that make up the island are up to 2.6 billion (2,600,000,000) years old. It has its own particular history and natural environment that sets it apart from the rest of Great Britain.
