Details

Grève de Lecq Bay was a German strongpoint during the Occupation. The German Forces deployed a lot of armaments and bunkers in the area. Today you can still find a Type 670 and a Type 680 Casemate, which housed a 7.5cm Pak 40 Gun and a 10.5cm French Gun. The Harbour has scars of where the Germans installed a tank turret. You can also find traces of rails used to move the searchlight. Near the cafe remains of a latrine and sink block can be found. In the middle of the bay a Jersey Round Tower dominates the view, this Napoleonic era tower was also modified by the Germans to include a secure bunker at the base, and a roof-mounted machine gun.
