Remarks: Sir Frederick is currently the only inhabitant of the small channel island of Brecqhou. The rocky private island is located about 200 meters west of the larger island Sark. and has a fairly steep coast. On the plateau of the island there is a large (fake) Gothic style (Résidence Des Frères Barclay) castle from 1996 (architect Quinlan Terry ) with granite walls almost 1 meter thick. In addition, there is a helicopter-platform and two swimming pools. There is quite some disagreement/discussion about the status of Brecqhou in relation to the island of Sark. The Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles occupied by the German army during World War II. The name Brecqhou is derived from the Old Norse brekka, meaning slope, and holmr = island or islet. The island also produces its own stamps. Tourism is very limited and only possible from the island of Sark subject to certain lodging conditions, visitors can make a tour to the private gardens, vineyards, and chapel. There are around 2000 plant-species on the island. In addition, the island has become more forested quite recently.
