War Trail

As featured on the Channel 4 programme ‘Time Team’, the War Trail is a green and peaceful sequence of footpaths, which provide an insight into the field fortifications and defences built by the German occupying forces.

The central feature of the War Trail is the remains of a German anti-aircraft battery built to protect the eastern approach to Jersey’s airport. Fortified anti-aircraft gun positions, crawl trenches and personnel shelters have remained untouched since 1945.
