Road names

 Broad Street Wayfarer sign

Around the roads and lanes of Jersey you will find road names in English, French and sometimes in Jèrriais. There is even one lane in Town (Hilgrove Street) with 4 names on one sign. Jersey roadnames often don’t start with Le or La – such as Rue au Tchian in Grouville which is the road of the dog - While La Planque Billot refers to a bridge (or plank) across a stream in what were sand dunes"
