La Folie Inn

From the listed building documents: “1700-1737 origins, one of the earliest inns surviving in the town, which retains its exterior character and some interior features of interest. The mid-C20 lean-to public toilets are not of interest. One of oldest inns in St Helier. Built between 1700-1737 - the inn doesn't appear on map compiled in 1700 but is shown on Peter Meade's map of 1737. Painting shows the building in 1820. The area known as La Folie was built in the early 1700s. The stone fronted quay was open to the south-westerly gales and provided little protection for the inn, and to many people it was a foolish project - a folly. The inn was built for workers employed on building the new harbour and for seafarers returning from long voyages”.
