Guernsey, 4th Day, Fort Hommet

Still working on a military theme, after lunch we drove down to Vazon Bay, a little south of Cobo Bay. On the headland between the two bays lies Fort Hommet, yet another German military outpost.
Fort Hommet is built around an old brick fort originating from 1680 which has a Martello Tower, constructed in 1804, and other Victorian additions. The Germans regarded the whole promontory as a stronghold and included casemates, bunkers and a minefield to protect the headland.
Following this visit we made our way a little further south to see Fort Saumarez.
The last two photographs are double exposures.
