Jersey, officially the Bailiwick of Jersey, is an island and self-governing Crown Dependency near the coast of north-west France. It is the largest of the Channel Islands and is 22 kilometres from the Cotentin Peninsula in Normandy. The Bailiwick consists of the main island of Jersey and some surrounding uninhabited islands and rocks including Les Dirouilles, Les Écréhous, Les Minquiers, and Les Pierres de Lecq.
