Visited as part of a walk along the coast path. Really just a wall with a surviving arch and some foundations but a very atmospheric site and interesting to look around if passing.

Great archway into the site which speaks of former grandeur. Not much beyond that however. Base of a couple of towers. A pretty stunning coastal view. But not worth going out of your way for. We did stumble on the nearby WW2 towers which were...More

A very dilapidated castle which is now difficult to imagine what it was without the description board at the door. It main attraction is the stunning views overlooking Sark and Guernsey.

An ancient castle on the NW corner of Jersey, with the glowering concrete bunkers of German engineering alongside. With views stretching out over the Channel what a place. The castle only had 3 walls, the cliffs were the 4th side, I loved it.

Not a great deal to see now after the ravages of time. Walked from Batterie Moltke to Grosnez so an interesting walk. A Nazi bunker free zone which was a surprise as Grosnez Castle is very prominent.

Strange place for a castle, badly designed for defence and no water, apart from that great place for a fort!
