Anyone with an interest in the Second World War should come here. It's a part of Hitler's Atlantic Wall, and a memorial to all those slave labourers that the Organisation Todt worked to their deaths building it. The concrete is several feet thick, so not much could penetrate the bunkers, but I would think that the concussive effect of a few heavy shells detonating on the roof would be enough for anyone inside.

Husband loved it and was very impressed, it’s part of the Jersey history of WW2 and nice to see it has been preserved for future generations to learn about the history surrounding this island.

Probably all military enthusiasts know that Hitler’s “Atlantic Wall” was a coastal defence system along the coast of continental Europe, however only a few know that Channel Islands were the first part of it as the construction of fortifications began here. Today, great majority of fortifications on the continent is demolished or destroyed by time, however Jersey is an exception and you can find many well-preserved fortifications grouped in carefully designed strongpoints, especially in western part of the island. Battery Lothringen is one of such places and it is a “proper” one, as there are over 30 different items listed below the plan of this place, including more than a dozen of different bunkers, gun emplacements, naval tower, rangefinder and platforms for a searchlight here. This place is a real treat for any militaria fan. The place itself is a great viewpoint, as it is located at the end of Noirmont Point and there is easy access by car with large parking. It overlooks a big part of southern coast of Jersey, including St Aubin’s Bay with Elizabeth Castle, so it is worthy to visit, even if you are not impressed by any militaria.

You can visit the WOII buildings on Noirmont Point which are still in a relatively good state. Information boards on site will give you extra explanation about the structures. I would have liked to visit the observation tower and command bunker from the inside. But the battery has very limited opening times, so you have to plan it carefully. Plenty of parking space if you come by car. Or you can walk from St-Aubin harbour, it is a very lovely walk along green lanes. A small part is by a rather busy road and the start of the walk is very steep. It took me about 45 minutes to get here. As a bonus you have wonderful views from the headland.
