Occupation Observation Tower at La Corbière

Posted by sithenah (Greater Manchester/Cheshire, United Kingdom) on 26 October 2010 in Architecture and Portfolio.

On the headland at La Corbière is an observation tower, one of three built during the German Occupation of Jersey in the Second World War. Their purpose was to direct artillery fire against targets out to sea. The tower was used until 2004 by Jersey Radio as marine radio for shipping. Now it is has three bedrooms and is available as a holiday let.
