This is Stp 120 Pommern at Wissant, France.  It is located between Cap Blanc Nez and Cap Gris Nez.
The bunkers at this location will soon be demolished.  So hurry if you want to see them for the last time.

Most black and white pictures represent my visit in 2000.  Since then a lot has changed.  The R600 has tilted a lot and the dunes are eroding away.
The garage with platform has disappeared probably with enforcing the dike.

My last visit revealed another bunker which was not visible earlier !  See further.
I decided to put a lot of pictures on this site, some dating from early 2000.  I just love those analogue black and white pictures !

March 8, 2013: Destruction has begun...

Plan from the (exellent) book 'Le Mur de l'Atlantique dans la baie de Wissant(Du cap Blanc-nez au cap Gris-Nez) de Hervé Olejniczak, Jörg Poweleit, Dirk Peeters and Yannick Delefosse.  The numbers correspond mostly with those I have put in the Google Earth chart.  The locations on the Google earth Chart are however measured with a Garmin GPS 60CSx at the location.

It starts with close to the parking place, a 502, Dopppelgruppenunterstand with Tobruk.  The bunker is sealed off.  Position 007.

Same bunker, backside.

This has nothing ot do with a bunker, it was part of a failed water project in the seventies.  Thanks for pointing this out Francis.
