Manor Village

Village in Herm

Right in the centre of the island is a clutch of granite houses where the villagers live. Here you'll find a 19th-century keep, built by an eccentric German aristocrat, as well as the primary school, power station and the tiny St Tugual chapel. Out front is a memorial to Peter and Jenny Wood, whose family leased the island from WWII to 2008 and restored it to what it remains today.
