Castel - House known as Les Mourains (may no longer stand)
Possibly mid-to-late-eighteenth century
A woman who lived here died after giving birth to two sons, although she had time to make her husband promise not to remarry. Her husband failed to keep the promise, and shortly after his second marriage, his first wife came home post-mortem. She was seen by the children's nanny and the sound of her silk dress heard along the corridors. The family locked up the drawing room as it was the ghost's favourite place to manifest. Eventually the rector of the parish banished the ghost to a cupboard which was then boarded up, although sometimes the former wife could be heard behind the planks.

Grouville - La Hougue Bie
Local lord Seigneur de Hambye killed a dragon in the marshes close to here but was then murdered by his squire. The squire took credit for killing the monster, and claimed the beast had killed de Hambye, but not before his former master requested that the squire marry his widow. Fortunately, the squire would sleep talk, and it was not too long before the truth slipped from his lips in the marital bed. He was hanged for murder. Seigneur de Hambye was buried under La Hougue Bie.

St Brelade - Coastline
The coastline here was once highly fertile until a group of wreckers lured several Spanish ships close to the shore. All the ships hit the rocks and sank, but not before a Spanish captain shouted out a curse that condemning the wreckers and the future of the land. A year to the day later, a massive wave hit the area, drowning all the wreckers and washing the topsoil away and replacing it with sand.
St Brelade - Parish church
Legend - Old Nick
The church was going to be built over a mile away, but the workmen awoke the day the construction was due to start and found their materials had been moved closer to the sea. The men spent the day moving everything back to the original spot, but after the materials were once again moved the following night, the church was constructed where it now stands. The jury is divided on whether God, the Devil or fairy folk were responsible.

A ghostly woman in black is said to still haunt this building.
