Historic Jersey buildings

Les Bois, St Peter


A house on the edge of St Peter's Village, not to be confused with an earlier property of the same name which was demolished - we think in the 1950s - when Jersey Airport was expanded

Notes and references

There was an earlier house in St Peter called Les Bois, which was demolished as the nearby Jersey Airport was enlarged. Some interesting features of the house, which was believed to date from the early 16th century, and thus to be one of the earliest surviving houses at the time, were rescued and used elsewhere. The benetier was installed in St Peter's Parish Church. This picture is in the photographic archive of La Société Jersiaise
