BULL OF ST CLEMENT
St. Clement's beach
Fishermen believed that the bull roamed among these rocks at low tide

Several years ago, Jersey fishermen talked of a roaring bull that roamed around the rocks on St. Clement's beach at low tide.

People were so scared of this bull that they refused to venture down to the beach, even to go fishing.

One fisherman refused to believe the tale about the bull, and decided to search the rocks. Whilst he was searching, the bull began to roar - but when the fisherman followed the sound, he found a rock pool, where the rocks had been eroded to form a pipe.

At low tide water was sucked down the pipe, making a gurgling noise, which echoed loudly off all the rocks. The fishermen filled up the rock pipe - and that was the end of the bull of St. Clement.
