An agricultural field which measuring a total of 8 vergee 5.6 perch (13,340m2 or 3.3 acres) located on a quiet lane in a rural area of St Andrew’s enclosed by low earth banks.
There is a good access via two entrance ways into the field, it is slightly sloping providing good drainage for rainfall. Although the field is currently farmed, there is no fixed agreement or charge.
In the centre of the island is the garden of Guernsey. What the parish lacks in coastline it makes up for in rural pasture, and a Tony Jacklin designed golf course. At its heart St Andrew’s has fields of gold once central to cider making in the island. Its church is affectionately known as St André de la Pommeraye, or St Andrew of the apple orchard, as celebrated each year in good family fashion in the rectory gardens.
There are lovely clusters of granite farmhouses and the Little Chapel’s setting of Vauxbelets means pretty little valleys, watched over by a former monastery, now Blanchelande College. Talbot Valley is even prettier and while it lies predominantly in the Castel, St Andrew’s will point to where it begins.Read our parish guide
