The National Trust for Jersey will be closing the footpath from the back of St Brelade’s Bay pier which leads to Le Coleron Battery, also known as Le Don Morley for a period of two weeks to allow essential repair works to take place.
The current path has become undermined from severe wind and sea conditions during the winter months and has now become unsafe and will have to undergo works to make the path safe again.
The path will be closed from Monday 19th May until Friday 30th May.
The battery now consists of a paved area bounded by a low wall which was built in 1817 during the reign of George III. It was constructed as a defensive position to guard the bay from Napoleonic invasion and was complemented by the gun battery at Le Cotte, at the other end of the bay, now still visible as the white cottage built on top of the cliff.
