I have visited this battery site twice now, the first time a few years ago when it opened to the public. At that time there was a lot of work still to be done. I visited the site this year on D.Day and I am afraid there is still a lot of work to be done.
The battery was of great importance to the German army defending Normandy in 1944. It was active throughout D.Day yet it receives very little mention compared to similar sites like Point du Hoc, where the American Rangers battled to get ashore, only to find a largly inactive battery.
I couldn't help feeling that the whole site could do with a general tidy up. The grass, thistles and stinging nettles were overgrowing the trenches and it was hard to imagine it as a working defensive battery. Although still well worth a visit, a little more attention to detail and some 'gardening' duties would help a lot.
