There are 5 former concrete bunkers above the cliff at this location with cannons aimed towards the English Channel. Not a lot of information about whether or not they were used to defend the coast on D Day or not but they are very interesting...More

These batteries were so great to visit. I can't believe they are still standing. The history behind them was great to read.

This place is open and easily accessible for all, though getting into the guns emplacements isn't possible for those with mobility problems. In addition to the actual gun batteries, do take the path down towards the cliff edge (path runs from fourth and last gun)...More
