Old Telescope on the Butes - Alderney

    Newer Older

    Who knows how long this old public telescope has been here. It worked when I arrived here 2 years ago, but some thoughtless person has broken the eyepiece since then! It overlooks the magnificent Braye Bay, with Fort Albert on the other side. The area with the Houses on the right is "Newtown", and I think it was new in the early 1700's ;-)
    You can tell it is Summer because of all the Yachts behind the Breakwater!
