Wn23 & Wn24 Aumeville Lestre
Beach front Widerstandsnest built around old fort
Wn23 site overview
What to see
Wn23 and Wn24 Aumeville Lestre were two small resistance nests built around an old fort mound across the bay from St-Vaast-la-Hogue. Today the site is almost completely buried on marshy farmland so difficult to access.
On the beach front however there are lots of small Tobruks - many are in a damaged state - including several types for machine guns and captured tank turrets, plus a 1694 Ringstand for a 5cm KwK gun.
