Small strongpoint on the beachfront at Wimereux
Stp214 Lachmowe site overview
What to see
The beautiful town of Wimereux is visited by thousands of tourists each year but few will spot the remaining structures left over from WW2.
Stp214 Lachmowe stands in the heart of the town next to the beach with a long section of anti-tank wall running along the promenade to the north of the river mouth. Along its length you can see a small, turret-like construction which was once an open type of emplacement where a 5cm KwK anti-tank gun was mounted.
Further back along the river, between the footbridge and road bridge out of the town you can see some more concrete which also formed part of the defences. Here you’ll find the remains of a defended lock which also is reported to have held netting across the river to stop small boats from entering the town.
