Lihou Island off Guernsey is looking for a live-in warden, and its new guardian will oversee 36-acres of craggy landscape from their rent-free farmhouse.
The remote island – which is only accessible at low tide via a causeway and is owned by the States of Guernsey – is home to several endangered species of birds, as well as a 12th-century priory. It’s been a protected spot for the last 13 years when the Lihou Island Trust was established and its first warden, Richard Curtis was appointed.
He’ll be on hand to show his replacement the ropes, which includes knowledge of flora and fauna, and showing visitors around Lihou – especially the many schoolchildren that come each year. Would be wardens can get in touch with him via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
