A merchantman and other vessels off Castle Cornet, Guernsey

The harbour of St Peter Port is shown with Castle Cornet on the left and the quay on the right. Isolated on the rocky islet, Castle Cornet is Guernsey's ancient harbour fortress. Guernsey's sheltered harbour meant the island was important for its fishing and shipbuilding over a long period. It was also a base of English privateers and the presence of forts indicates the necessity of providing protection. By the 1800s, many wealthy French people, fleeing the Revolution, set up home in the Channel Islands. There were 16 forts and 58 coastal batteries built to defend the island from the French prior to the Battle of Waterloo.
