    On the left side of the plant there are still some information boards. There is a parking lot and a tourist office near the road.

    is one of the Atlantic Wall firing batteries, located on the coastal town of Longues-sur-Mer in Calvados. The site included four 150mm long-range naval cannons, each protected by a reinforced concrete casemate, and various facilities to serve and defend them. Located in the area of the Allied landing in Normandy, between the beaches of Omaha Beach and Gold Beach, the battery was subjected to intense aerial and naval bombardments preventing it from fully entering into action on D-Day and was taken as soon as the next day by British troops. Classified as a Historic Monument, it is in a good state of conservation. (wikipedia)
