Only a R505 and part of an anti tank ditch remains.
The bunker stands on private property.  No free access.

The situation has changed a lot.  A commercial center has been build around it but the bunker has been nicely preserved.
Unfortunately they are flooding it with water.  If we want to recover the bunker number we have to be quick.

The R505 is a Casemate for anti-tank gun. It still holds it armoured plate which is quite exeptional.
