Archirondel Tower

Archirondel Tower is one of the coastal towers constructed on the orders of the Governor of Jersey, General Conway, and was completed after the Battle of Jersey. Built to a design which is unique to Jersey, it pre-dates the “Martello” towers built across the south coast of Britain (and some additional towers in Jersey as well) in the early part of the 19th Century.

Originally built on a rock which was surrounded by the sea at high tide, it now sits at the end of an unfinished arm of a harbour planned in St Catherine’s Bay to accommodate the English Fleet.
