Channel Islands - Alderney
Alderney is the most northerly of the Channel Islands. It is
part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, a British Crown dependency. It is
3 miles (4.8 km) long and 1.5 miles (2.4 km) wide. The area is 3
square miles (7.8 km2), making it the third-largest island of the
Channel Islands, and the second largest in the Bailiwick. It is
around 10 miles (16 km) to the west of La Hague on the Cotentin
Peninsula, Normandy, in France, 20 miles (32 km) to the north-east
of Guernsey and 60 miles (97 km) from the south coast of Great
Britain. It is the closest of the Channel Islands to both France and
the United Kingdom. It is separated from Cap de la Hague by the
dangerous Race of Alderney (Le Raz Blanchard).
The island has a population of only 2,400 people and they are
traditionally nicknamed vaques after the cows, or else lapins after
the many rabbits seen in the island. Formally, they are known as
Ridunians, from the Latin Riduna.
The only parish of Alderney is the parish of St Anne, which covers
the whole island.
The main town, St Anne ('La Ville', or 'Town' in English), is
referred to as 'St Anne's'. It features an imposing church and an
unevenly cobbled high street. There are a primary school, a
secondary school and a post office, and hotels, restaurants, banks
and shops. Other settlements include Braye, Newtown, Longis, Crabby
