The Atlantikwall Europe

Alderney has recently joined the European network ‘Atlantikwall Europe’ (AWE). Jersey and Guernsey are also part of this network which brings together interested organisations from locations where there are remains of the Atlantic Wall. The aim is to commemorate this aspect of history and to preserve its heritage.

Bunker Day

Since the creation of the network, a  ‘Bunker Day’ has been dedicated to the Atlantic Wall; this year it is on the 1st of June. All along this former defensive line which extended from Norway to the Spanish border, the wider public can discover more about this heritage through  a variety of events  organised by members of the network.

Bunker Day on Alderney

On Alderney, ‘Bunker Day’ has been chosen for the Grand Opening of the PaK bunker, located opposite the Braye Beach Hotel by Douglas Quay at the harbour. This bunker, has been the focus of the latest heritage/clearance project led by Visit Alderney with  great support from the States Works Department, Alderney Society (AS) and Alderney Wildlife Trust (AWT).

The event will include:

  • Grand Opening of the Bunker, ribbon cutting at 10am
  • Old photographs display
  • Dr Trevor Davenport, local WWII expert to answer any fortification questions
  • Refreshments

From 10am until 12noon, at the PaK Bunker.
