The Wildlife Bunker is a restored Dezimetergerät (a structure that housed communication equipment) which was constructed on the south coast headland by the occupying German forces between 1940 and 1945.
The Alderney Wildlife Trust cleared and partially restored this bunker to its original condition in 2002 and continues to maintain it. There are many information boards covering history and natural history which offer visitors the chance to understand how mankind has affected Alderney’s environment over the years.
This bunker is home to nesting swallows every Spring. It is always a great place to stop off along your walk around the headland and on a clear day you get fantastic views of all the other Channel Islands.
Always open to the public.
