The WW2 MP3 – Marinepeilstand 3 is a German Naval Direction Finding Tower. It dominates the sky line on the top of this area and is surrounded by loads of bunkers, search light and gun placements.

It was a bit of a task slipping into the tower as the gap is narrow and you have to get quite close to the edge of the ledge to swing up and get in. This has three upper floors and has some assessable lower floors but parts are blocked up. You can see for miles from all of the three observation slits and I watched the RNLI and Coastguard helicopter doing a search out at sea. The tower structurally does not look at its best. There is subsidence in the building, the walls are splitting and there is various collapses on the lower levels.

At the bottom of the quarry where you see the remains of the steam crane there is a tunnel, it’s also collapsing at one end. I believe this was used as an ammunition store.
