This is the only preserved V1 launch pad in France. 117 were in Normandy alone. They offer guided tours during summer. But just walking that amazing forest is impressive. The bombshell craters are still there. Highly recommended.

Nice V1 site in the forest
Aug 2019
This is a pretty well preserved V1 site in a forest, with a nice trail with info boards and lots of things to see. However the V1 and launch pad are reconstructions but still gives you a very good feel for what it would have been like. Apart from that everything is genuine, and the site is completely open and free to explore.

We arrived here around mid-day and pretty much had the place to ourselves. The children enjoyed following the numbered boards and reading the information boards. There are several buildings, some ruins and a replica V1 on the launch ramp. Very interesting site. Can spend about an hour here.

Thought provoking

In a forest with a small car park on the side of the road. A short walk takes you through to a range of buildings which have signage in several languages including English. The V1 launch pad pointing at London has an information board with description of workings. A beautiful quiet location with a very murky past.

Interesting site hidden in the forest
Apr 2018 • Family
Off the beaten track, partially restored V2 site is well worth a short stop. Arrived shortly after lunch and were more or less the only people there. Information boards (also in English) provide some basic information. The site is extremely atmospheric and genuinely moving. Plenty of time to contemplate and share such an important part of history with the children.

If passing its worth a look

We arrived here early one morning and had the place to ourselves .There are a series of numbered information boards to guide yourself around. There are several buildings some in ruins but the best part is the replica V1 on the launch ramp ready to be launched, If you want to visit a V1 site with more buildings but without the V1 and launch ramp visit the site near Morbecque again in a wood.

Off the beaten track but worth a short stop. The buildings are labelled if the guides are not there. We walked around ourselves and found enough information . As with most sites it is a sombre but interesting place

Poignant reminder

Just returned from another visit to this area and found this site so moving.Guides at the weekend to help understand the enormous threat that these weapons made.Acredit to the people who have preserved this site as a tribute to the bravery of people who fought to remove and destroy these weapons This is not an attraction, more an important history lesson

Atmospheric Site

One of the numerous V1 sites in Normandie but this one has been partially restored. Very atmospheric location without any frills but extremely informative. There are guides who will escort you and several information plaques.
