Atlantikwall - Feldbatterie "Stützpunkt 049" Adinkerke

This German field battery consists of four gun casemates and one command bunker. There are also remains of trenches here. The battery was heavily bombarded by Allied bombers in 1944, which is still visible on many of the bunkers standing here.
