The Maisy Battery is a huge German WW2 Headquarters and Gun Batteries that was left buried in the fields of Normandy for the past 60 years. Only re-opened in 2006 this site now stands as the largest in Normandy of its type with over 3km of trenches open for you to see along side personnel buildings, ammunition tunnels, Hospitals and many more buildings that you can walk through and explore! Private tours are available on request taken by the owners. This is really a unique site to see on this coast!

A hidden gem with a beautiful historical story. Be sure to ask for the story. Once triggered, buy the excellent book!

One of the most interesting sights in the whole of the Normandy landings feature. Owners Gary and son Daniel are so well informed about the site and surrounding history
