Sinclair Forest, local archaeologist, will lead you around Mont Ubé dolmen and other prehistoric elements in the area. Following this, Jonathan Bull, local historian will explain why the East of the Island became so important in the German defences.
The Eastern High Ground Defences
Jonathan Bull then takes us on a circular walk which takes in the German defences along the route, utilising the beautiful and quiet St Clements nature trail. The views are breath-taking. Many of the defences have long since been removed, some traces still remain and Johnathan will explain and interpret them. We will take in Battery Sites, Resistance Nests and some smaller positions, there will also be other eras of history along the way.
3.5 miles (6k) easy going and 90% off-road - approx 2 hours depending on conditions.
Please wear appropriate footwear as if it is wet or has been wet there may be mud and slippery paths.
