A seaplane at Anne Port in the late 1920s. This is a very rare photograph of a seaplane landing anywhere other than in St Aubin's Bay in Jersey's coastal waters. The aircraft may have landed in St Catherine's Bay and taxied to Anne Port as the first stretch of beach where it could disembark passengers. This is a six-seater Vickers Viking IV seaplane, registered G-EBED to Leslie Hamilton of the Royal Aero Club in 1926 and possibly destroyed in 1929

Anne Port is a sandy beach on Jersey's east coast, between Gorey and St Catherine. It has always had very limited parking, so never becomes overcrowded.

It is overlooked at its southern end by a rock face known as Le Saut Geoffroi (Jeffrey's Leap) which legend has it was the scene of ancient executions, with those suspected of witchcraft pushed over the cliff face to die on the rocks below.
