Location: Corbière at the South Western tip of the UK Channel Island of Jersey

From what I can tell, this is a German bunker built in World War II. I didn't see any markings to indicate what it is, but from my previous trip to the neighbouring island of Guernsey last summer, it seems to fit the bill.

Like Guernsey, Jersey was an island for the most part occupied by German forces during the World War II as it is located much closer to France than the UK (France being under German control at the time).

Of course, we know how the story ends, the Allies won and Jersey was liberated in the process. For all the hardships they were subjected to, the local residents nevertheless still decided to keep much of the German "artifacts" intact, as they feel it is still part of their history and should not be swept under the rug.
