Channel Islands: Tour of Alderney
AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
Check out this fascinating aerial tour of one of the Channel Islands of Western Europe, compliments of happydrone. Alderney is the northernmost of the mini-archipelago, which lies off the coast of Normandy in the English Channel. It's part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, a quasi-state which is a historical relic of the medeival era Duchy of Normandy. The video features some great footage of different spots around the island, including bunkers built by Germany during its occupation of the Channel Islands in World War II.
Description: Alderney is a small Channel Island, just over 3 square miles in area. The brief tour starts at the harbour and generally follows the coast in a clockwise direction. This interesting place has many Victorian forts, countless German WW2 bunkers and a rugged stretch of tall cliffs. Many visitors are amazed at the crystal clear, tropical blue sea that teams with fish. If you enjoy exploring, the cliff top paths will provide breath-taking views and the chance to see the thriving wild life. The fortifications are generally accessible and free to enter. The inner part of the island has not been shown in this video and these may be added at a later date. Sound levels of music and train have been reduced for your enjoyment.
