“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

The CIOS have done some excellent additions to the displays here at Noirmont, everyone visiting the Channel Islands should take time to visit either this or some of the other CIOS sites... You get far better information and a feel for what it was really like, than at the Hospital... Or Jersey War Tunnels as they call it now! Well done Paul and all the CIOS members... See you next time we are on the island.

“Best occupation site on Jersey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

In my opinion this gives the best impression of the overwhelming presence of the Germans and the extent of the armaments that they installed on Jersey. Go there.

“A must for concrete spotters (like me)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

The Channel Islands Occupation Society should be congratulated for the efforts they do to preserve this historically important archaeology. Lothringen is one of the jewels on Jersey and should be seen if you have an interest, but check openings carefully.

“Highly absorbing attraction where you get a great feel for the occupation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Ok, so it was February when i visited Jersey and quite a bit was closed as its off season so I was really lucky when i got in touch with Ian (CIOS) and arranged to go out to the battery from St Hellier with some of Ian's friends. It's amazingly well preserved with one of the guns sited where it was years ago. You can go around the ammunition bunkers and get a feel for the layout of the site. Located here is the one of its type command bunker to its special cliff face design. The command bunker itself is brought to life by the displays and its easy to get an impression how it all worked. Views are brilliant as you'd guess from a range finding station. Well worth a visit. I'll be back...The pub on the top of the hill close by is well worth looking into too if its a bit chilly.
