St. Peter Port, Guernsey

st peter port
As we’ll be serializing C. Northcote Parkinson’s Richard Delancey novels over the next weeks it seems appropriate to start with Delancey’s hometown.

St. Peter Port, shown here with Castle Cornet in the right midground, is the capital of Guernsey. During the Age of Sail, Guernsey was a hotbed of smugglers and privateers.
