This site is well worth a visit. It is not as developed as say, the Merville battery, or as "tidy" as the Longues battery but that is part of the attraction. Yes, it could do with a tidy up and work is constantly underway but it is fascinating to wander through the maze of clearly marked paths and trenches and discover all of the buildings and gun emplacements of this key artillery position. It also brings home the scale of these defensive sites and the land area that they covered - and it wasn't taken until 9th June 1944! Definitely worth putting on your D-Day tour itinerary!
