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.

A very interesting place, so pleased that we made time to go. As part of the WW2 history of the islands it is a must. Especially to understand how quickly the site was set up and armed. The site is bigger than we expected and we spent quite a lot of time there. The information boards are mostly in good condition and informative. The amount of preserved equipment is impressive and again most is in good condition. Underfoot it is not flat but quite a lot of the site is accessible. As a bonus there are wonderful views from this coastal site and some interesting flora.

We decided to have a look at the Battery Lothringen near St Brelade on Jersey. It is a must view place. If you are an enthusiast who loves lokking around second world war sites then you will go along way to find better than this. There is a complete underground placement which has everything set up as it would have been in 1941-1945. There are sleeping quarters, kitchen, toilets, wireless room gun positions etc etc. The work and effort that has gone on with this site is remarkable and really is worth the visit. The car park is enormous and the free. There is a small charge of approx £2.50 per person to view the bunker area. It is worth every penny so please go and have a look for yourselves. There are other areas around the main site which have also been excavated which show where all the cartridges etc had been stored and these are also free to view and worth a visit.

It gave me a great sense of perspective of the defences during the occupation. It would have been quite formidable

We visited the battery, after seeing the tourist leaflet. we timed our visit, so they were open...check this, its only open on weekends mostly, so check before you go on the channel islands occupation society website. We paid £2.50 to go in, worth every penny, and a real insight. The volunteers (volunteers - hence the limited opening hours) were fantastic and knew their stuff.

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.

We try to visit all the bunkers when we come to Jersey but need to check the opening times as they're not open all of the time. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and if you want to join the Channel Islands Occupation Society, you will get free entry to all of these bunkers when they are open.

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.

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.
