Bunker type 634 found in Hoek van Holland
Finally some nice news from Hoek van Holland, at least for the moment. An interesting bunker type 634 for Sechsschartenturm was found at Wn 33H near the Oranjesluis in the Landfront.
The bunker’s armoured turret was scrapped just after the war and a part of the roof was demolished. The new dike was built over the bunker. It was long thought that the whole bunker was demolished but some months ago when the rest of the bunkers in the Wn were demolished (134 and 621, one 134 was moved), it looked like the bunker was still there under the dike.
The last days the demolishing company dug it up. It was photographed, documented and remaining fittings and equipment were secured. Because it was under the ground for so long, the bunker was still in nice condition although being flooded for a big part.
Update 11 September:
It’s now covered again. It’s not sure yet if the bunker will be demolished.
Bas de Mos provided us with some extra inside photos.
