Lihou

Lihou is a small island that is part of the Channel Islands. The island was bought by the States of Guernsey in January 1995. On the island is a ruined priory which is believed to have been established by Benedictine monks[?] in the 12th century.

On Lihou there is a lot of bird and marine life that makes it an important conservation area[?]. During low tide[?] Lihou is connected to Guernsey by a causeway[?].

The house on Lihou was used for target practice by heavy artillery during the German occupation of the Channel Islands during World War II. It has now been rebuilt as accommodation for school groups, and is used as an Educational Resource.
