    Went for a little holiday and got to see these... :D

    During the German occupation of the Channel Islands they built a huge amount of defence works. The most impressive structures are the Fire Control towers, these are unique to the Channel Islands - only 3 of the 8 planned for Jersey were actually built and here they are...

    Did you manage to get in the two lower levels of the AA battery's at Les Landes:thumb Some great original artwork on the walls:cool:

    I was there a few years ago and they were wide open, along with the underground complex's that made up Battery Moltke:thumb

    A great Island to explore, bunkers galore:thumb:thumb

    The CIOS only look after a small restored part of the Moltke battery!
    There are further gun pits, heading towards Les Lande, where you can enter the underground complex. through a couple of entrances buried amongst some bushes.

    One of the entrances into the ammunition vaults is just to the side of the concrete parapit.
