New format. The FoPL have recently started a YouTube channel where all the fade in/out videos will eventually be saved to. The videos on this website and on our Facebook page will still be there but as a link. This has been done because YouTue is designed for videos and it is easier to upload to, easier to search for and will allow for a library of videos.

Victoria Harbour and Marina; 1970- to 2021

Looking across from the Red Light berth to the town church. I would guess that this was taken in the early 70s, certainly prior to 1973 when the marina was built.

St Peter Port still retains its charm when viewed from the water and I wonder how many of the boats moored in the basin are still around now? I suspect more than one might imagine.

The shops’ names have changed, with the exception of Creaseys, but the general look of the town is much the same as it was nearly 50 years ago.

Enjoy the video and many thanks to Priaulx Library for the original picture.
