Low Tide: The hidden Ice Age landscape revealed

La Cotte de St Brelade is a Neanderthal ravine system on the Jersey coastline. However for much of the last 250 years it sat overlooking an open dry landscape of granite and grasslands.

Yesterday’s low spring tide allowed us to see much of that open landscape revealed to a dramatic extent. To take advantage we arranged for Dr Sarah Duffy and a Go-Pro to take to the skies with experienced Jersey pilot Chris Winch. The footage was stunning, not only providing us with an important perspective on the site but also showing the beautiful Jersey coastline off, the shallow blue waters looking great in the warm July sun.
