Carey Castle

Built by John Carey (Hc4) c.1840 in mock Gothic style overlooking the Harbour of St Peter Port. It remained in the family until 1912 when it was sold by William Wilfred Carey (He10).

In his book, 'Toilers of the Deep', Victor Hugo makes mention of the Castle:

'On the North Hill, at Castle Carey, there is (was) a precious collection of paintings, most of them Spanish. If it were a public building it would be a museum.'
