This just brings home how horrid the time must have been for the islanders, and the slaves the Germans used to build these places. Interesting in a macabre way.

We made a stop here while on the Waverly Circle Island tour. While we did not enter the battery itself we had an awesome view from the outside and of the Naval direction finding tower. Beautiful views and well worth the visit

Our friends took us to show us this fascinating piece of history from the Second World War and the occupation of Jersey by Nazi Germany. It shows the the amount of construction that went into all these structures and makes you wonder how they built...More

When viewed purely from the outside it’s a fascinating site, but if your lucky enough to visit when the bunkers are open, wow your in for a treat the bunkers are full of WW2 memorabilia. A bargain at £3.

Anyone with an interest in Second World War history...this is a must! Fascinating to be able to see the defence installations up close and marvel at how much is left. It really gives you a sense of working in the footsteps of the past.

I found the Battery by chance and it really gives one the impression of a foreign nation being in Jersey. There are lovely views from the battlements and one can also go down steps to see how deep the batteries go. It can be quite...More

Fascinating, but please ensure you check the opening hours of the restored bunkers for the full experience. Lots to explore if the 'main' bunkers are closed but SO much better with full access when open at the weekends

Jersey is full of wonderful bunkers as well as World War Two history. I believe it will be open, however go on the tour which is 20 pounds for the who day and you won't regret it, as you see all the island. Hope you enjoy.
