Atlantic Wall


This panorama consists of four separate images joined together to capture the wide sweeping view across a beach on the west coast of Jersey.  

Being so close to the French mainland, Jersey has always been of strategic importance and has been defended against invasion over many years.                                                        

La Rocco Tower on the left of the image was built as a defence against French invasion in Napoleonic times while on the right  are the remains of a WWII Bunker and anti-tank wall.

 The much older rock formation or volcanic dyke running across the beach seems to represent a more enduring wall defending the beach from the ravages of the sea.
