Green light for Festung Guernsey’s 633

The guys of Festung Guernsey keep restoring bunkers on the Channel Island of Guernsey. After the Batterie Dollmann, Batterie Scharnhorst and Wn Königsmühlen they now have “conditional approval from the Planning Department” to open up the 633 of Stützpunkt Rotenstein (at Fort Hommet). Plans are to start digging in the new year, clean it up and open it to the public in restored condition.
Like all other bunkers on the island it has lost its armoured turret for the M19 automatic mortar but there should be some remaining objects inside. Damage to the turret shaft is severe “but I’m sure we will overcome this with a bit of thought and hard work”, according to Grant Steer of Festung Guernsey.
Good luck with this interesting bunker!
