A new jubilee legacy project has been unveiled by Guernsey's Torteval parish.

Three interpretation boards describing historical sites have been installed on the headland at Pleinmont.

The boards give detail on a German artillery battery, the Hanois lighthouse and an 18th Century watch-house, which now lies in ruins.

Members of the douzaine, along with a member of the Castle Cornet saluting battery, unveiled the boards at a ceremony at Pleinmont.

Torteval embarked on a series of projects to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

These included the creation of a time capsule, the raising of a mast, and the lighting of a church in the parish.
