627 Feldmässig, Cr 25, Pointe du Menhir

This point was named after the Menhir which stood here for thousands of years until the Germans blew it to pieces as it could be used for coast identification.

It's an impressive spot with a special bunker too. It's a light version of the Regelbau 627. Walls are only 40cm thick.

But the most important part of the bunker is there. A 20cm thick 850P6 Deckenplatte which covers the observer's position.

It was used as an artillery observation bunker for the batteries inland.

The interior is simplified compared to the original Regelbau.

A big chunck of steel is supporting the heavy plate.

There's an early observation bunker next to it.
