Ile Agois located on the north coast of Jersey in the Channel Islands. It is Jersey’s smallest offshore islet, and the closest to the shore. It is only 500 yards square and separated by a gorge only a few feet wide through the 250 foot high cliffs.
There are signs of previous occupation, the outline of 14 ancient hut circles having been traced. Neolithic pottery and flint arrowheads have been found, indicating probably occupancy in the 9th century BC, or earlier, and seven coins of Charles the Bald, grandson of Charlemagne, indicate further occupancy in the 9th Century AD. It is possible that at this time the islet had not been cut off from the cliffs and was used as a place of refuge.
Photographer Chris Brookes Bio
I was born and grew up in Jersey, Channel Islands and fell in love with the beautiful, fascinating and thought provoking heritage and landscapes. I have always been a keen photographer, with a particular passion for landscape photography, as well as flying UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), since 2013. I spotted an opportunity to take my passion into a new dimension, and Chris Brookes Aerial Photography got off the ground in July 2015.
