The Atlantik Wall In Normandy



Fort de Nacqueville Haut Wn225


This was originally an old French Fort was used in the early days of the occupation by the Germans. They build open emplacements here for four cannon, possibly 105mm French K331 cannons. They stopped using it once the batteries either side were established. The site was then used by the Luftwaffe for a Radar station called Castor. There are also two small Fire control posts, but these may have been of French origin, as are all of the buildings on the site.
