Welcome to Battery Moltke at Les Landes! We invite you to explore the underground tunnels and bunker complex that make up this impressive site.

More Information (Channel 103 is not responsible for external websites)

Originally intended as Kriegsmarine (Naval) 'Marine Battery 1', armed with four modern quick-firing 15cm turreted guns which never arrived thanks to the Allied bombing raids in Europe, the site was handed over to the Army Coastal Artillery, armed with 155mm field guns, and named Batterie Moltke.

The CIOS maintain and restore the vast and impressive interconnected complex of Number 4 gun which consists of a personnel shelter, 2 ammunition bunkers, the underground gun emplacement and a temporary emplacement mounting a 15.5cm ex-French GPF field gun recovered from the base of nearby cliffs where it was dumped by the British Army in 1946! There is also ample information on various aspects of the Occupation for the interested visitor and knowledgeable members on hand to help you with your visit. See if you can spot the hobnailed boot prints in the corridors!
