Excerpt from Guernsey, Its People and Dialect: Dissertation Presented to the Board of University Studies of the Johns Hopkins University for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy

Guernsey, in shape a triangle and Sloping toward the North, is divided into twenty parishes. The Lower or Northern Parishes are those most frequently visited by strangers; here the scenery is quiet, the bays are large, with beautiful white sand-beaches, varied, here and there, by some bold projection. The Southern coast, on the contrary, is beautiful in its very ruggedness; here, cliffs a hundred feet in height, wild and fierce, sea gulls and crows with their piercing shrieks, waves dashing against the rocks and into the caverns, all contribute to produce a peculiar fascination on the visitor.
