WN Fort Aubin

JWT coming soon.jpg

St. Aubin's Fort is a small walled fortification 500 metres off shore in St. Aubin's Bay. The first fort was built in 1542. In the beginning it served to protect the harbour from pirates, and in later years was developed as part of the island defences during the many Franco English wars. Major alterations were made in the 19th C. and during the WWII Occupation of Jersey, 1940-45, the Germans added concrete bunkers and
gun emplacements.
