National Trust Jersey QR Code Project

Publish date: 28 Jul 2021

As part of the National Trust for Jersey’s ongoing and developing digital strategy, QR codes have been erected around the Island at National Trust for Jersey sites namely;

  • Le Moulin de Quétivel,
  • Plémont Headland,
  • Victoria Tower,
  • Devil’s Hole,
  • Le Coupe,
  • Le Don Hilton, and
  • The Wetland Centre

The purpose of the QR codes is to provide digital information and interpretation on site and to encourage people to become members and/or raise donations to support the Trust’s vision to care for these special places for ever and for everyone.

The information at each site is based on the Trust’s ‘mantra’ of ‘discover, enjoy and protect’.

At Devil’s Hole for example, visitors can discover that the ‘hole’ is a natural crater caused by the sea gradually eroding the roof of what was once a cave and that the name ‘Devil’s Hole’ albeit dramatic, was only invented in the 19th century as a means of attracting intrepid visitors!

Visitors can enjoy the grandeur and wilderness of the north coast by using the viewing platform and learn that the site was generously donated in 2006 by the Clarke Family enabling the Trust to protect the site and undertake essential maintenance including the repair of the steep footpath down to Devil’s Hole – the first of many tasks undertaken by the Trust as part of its Coastline Campaign.

The QR code signs have replaced existing and rather tired signage already in situ at each of the sites and the QR code at the Wetland Centre sits aside the interpretation and cash donation box already in situ.

Interpretation on the QR codes include historic images of some of the sites. These have been kindly provided by the Société Jersiaise.

As the Trust is a self-funding charity, it is hoped that local residents and visitors who have enjoyed visiting the sites and learning more about them, will consider making a donation to help with the upkeep and maintenance of these special places for all to enjoy.
