Photo of the Year: Observation Tower


On the headland at La Corbiére is an observation tower, one of three built during the German Occupation of Jersey in the Second World War. Their purpose was to direct artillery fire against targets out to sea. The tower was used until 2004 by Jersey Radio as marine radio for shipping. Now it is has three bedrooms and is available as a holiday let.
