Myths & Legends II: Tales from the Sea - 84p Sheet of Ten
The 84p stamp illustrates the tale of Jeffrey's Leap. A rock known as Le Saut Geffroy, or Jeffrey's Leap, can be found on the north east coast of Jersey. It is said to be an ancient site where criminals were thrown from a large rock, into the sea and to their deaths. Legend has it that a man named Jeffrey was found guilty of a crime and was sentenced to be thrown from the rock. Amazingly, and to surprise of the many onlookers who had gathered to watch, he survived the fall and swam back to shore. Jeffrey was convinced that he had been saved by God and, to prove this, he jumped again of his own accord. This time, Jeffrey was not so lucky and perished on the rocks below.
