Les Gellettes

One of my favourite walks last autumn was at Les Gellettes - a wooded hillside at the end of the road where I live.  Like many places in Jersey, evidence of the German Occupation in the last war is visible but partially blended into the landscape, so it was a surprise to learn from last week's Time Team episode just how much activity there once was on the site - machine guns, anti aircraft guns, perhaps as many as 200 soldiers living there.

Peaceful now...
