Jersey Evening Post Newspaper article : 'The battle to save the tower in St Ouen's Bay'. St Ouen's Bay is blessed with many landmark buildings but La Rocco Tower is arguably the defining image of this special area. However, 50 years ago, it was in danger of crimbling into the sea, as the States refused to save it.
