Sechsschartenturm Excavation At St Ouen's Bay

CIOS Jersey and Unseen Jersey members dug out the entrance to a WW2 fortification yesterday, to collect parts from inside the rare Heavy Machine Gun Turret Bunker at St Ouen’s Bay. We’ll refurbish these and use them in our bunkers open to the public like the nearby Sechsschartenturm below Val de la Mare Reservoir.

Photos and video of the excavation are now online, please see the Sechsschartenturm Excavation photo album and try our YouTube channel for video from inside the bunker.

A big thank you to SGB Hire Channel Islands for donating equipment which made this research possible.
