This ranging tower dominates this side of them island. It’s not that easy to find and the bird hide nearby appears closed. Sadly there is no access unless arranged with the tourist off in advance - which considering most other bunkers are open access, is...More

A sad reminder of past times many ways, but well worth the effort to explore in tranquility and thankfulness. The views are spectacular and on our visit the visibility exceptional. Just one for the many ghosts of the past on this lovely island

I called it "The Fortress of Doom" for its completely incongruous, James-Bond-Villainesque appearance in an otherwise tranquil country field. It is the most visible reminder of Alderney's bizarre World War II history, as an island abandoned by the British and all of its inhabitants while...More
