Churchill Barrier 1

Churchill Barrier 1 is one of the Churchill Barriers, a series of four causeways in the Orkney Islands with a total length of 1.5 miles. The barries were built in 1940 to block access to the naval base Scapa Flow.

Nowadays, the causeways are still present and carry the A961 road.
