Recollection at Gorey
Engraved on the sides of the keel are the names of 16 of the largest ships built at Gorey when ship construction was a thriving industry in the area during the 18th century. The idea of the fountain is to recall those days. The keel is laid on bricks possibly as old as Gorey's shipbuilding industry. They were taken from the old prison at Newgate Street. More information can be found on the website of the Société Jersiaise.
You can now find the best 55 photographs from our recent trip to Jersey on Jersey 2010.
