St Brelade
Exclusive to this page:
At the bottom of Mont Les Vaux,
St Aubin. A multi-function stone
erected in 1865 when the Route de
St Brelade was opened. It serves as
a milestone (see base) giving a
reading of 4 miles to the Royal Square.
It names the road and those responsible
for it's construction - St Brelade Constable
Joshua Brayn (who was born in St Helier
and by the time of the 1871 census was
living in St Saviour - see 1548!) and the
contractor F. Luce.
It gives directions to St Aubin, Beaumont
and St Helier on one side and the Parish
Churches of St Brelade, St Peter and St
Ouen on the other.

All three of these stones were erected in 1838 when the the parishioners of
Trinity (after many appeals) finally gained good roads to replace the muddy
tracks that linked up with General Don's Military roads, which had been built between 1806 and 1815.
