To the west of battery Dollemard is the area of the Cap de la Hève. This is open to the public and is an area of important flora & fauna.
The area is interwoven with narrow (somewhat over-grown) tracks and heavily graffiti decorated bunkers in a position known as Sainte-Adresse.
These bunkers originated with the French Navy but were taken over and enlarged for use as part of Hitler’s Atlantic Wall.
The cliffs here are eroding fast and the four large gun emplacements (Type 671’s?) have now fallen to the beaches below!
In fact, the whole area is somewhat dodgy where health and safety is concerned.
There is a selection of ammunition bunkers & observation bunkers that are still secure, however the whole area seems to be a venue for elicit teenage drinking etc. and best visited in daylight!

To the west of this battery is the remains of a Cap de la Hève German Radar Station – “Gustav”.
