Wanstone Battery

This location is about 5km's outside Dover on the east side of the castle. When driving to this location you will pass some other old WWII sides like the big Radar antennas, used to protect England against the German Luftwaffe.

The location of this battery is not easy to find, but we where guided by some "English bunker guides".weggelaten
From the emplacements is hardly anything to see, a lot of objects have been demolished or burried underground. What you can find are some ammunition bunkers and personnel buildings.
All so there where some heavy guns placed here to protect the harbour of Dover and the rest of the English coast, as well to attack enemy ships in the Canal. They where not allowed to fire at the coast of France as an answer on German shellings, because that would result in more shellings on Dover.
