TOUR OF BATTERIE SCHARNHORST

This site is only accessible by signing up for an organised tour as it is on private land. On Sunday 4th September 2022 I attended the tour run by Tours of Guernsey.

Amanda Johns is a very knowledgeable guide and the tour is highly recommended. Amanda is local Silver Accredited Tour Guide and a WWll expert Pierre Renier was also in attendance. Both Amanda and Pierre are volunteers for Festung Guernsey who maintain this and other sites. You can find their website here.

The tour was fascinating on a site that I have never visited before. I highly recommend this tour. I have put a few pictures on this page to give you a flavour of the site but there is so much more to see and I don’t want to spoil it for anyone looking to do the tour.

To book a tour of this and other sites take a look at Amanda’s website here https://www.toursofguernsey.com/. You will also find more information there.

Also follow her Facebook page here or follow on Twitter for latest news here
