Is that right? I always thought the highest point was 460ft asl; where did I get that from I wonder? In that case, my house must be about 280ft asl as it's at Coin Motier in St. Lawrence. I'm sure I saw the height of the adjacent field on the Digimap at work as being 360ft asl; I must have misread. By the way, count me in for a visit to the new tower; I'd love to see it.

I found an excuse to go for a nose around the tower when it was being built but it was a miserable day so wouldn't mind going again. It's funny the random places around the island that it pops in to view from

What, you mean everywhere really, don't you?

I didn't bother with the public open days, so would also be up for a visit if poss. I've done the Alderney ATC tower, but it's not quite the same really . And also the roof of Vic College come to think of it - where the view to the south east is pretty good.

My charts show the north of the island as 410 ft elevation!

Wikki states that Les Platons is 143m asl (465ft). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geography_of_Jersey

I may of been mistaken about Les Platons maybe the 430ft martini mentions is what I was thinking. ,

A visit in the New Year will be organised for a limited number (6 ish).
Will organise a date and good weather when the vis is about 50km !!

So far,

GJOKYZ
