Pleinmont Tower/ German Naval Observation Tower MP3

Pleinmont, Torteval, GY8

See directions

This is one of six Marinepeilstände (MP) observation towers that were built on high points. They are the most obvious symbol of German construction. Each observation slit of a tower observed for one particular battery and was fitted with range finding equipment.  

Naval Range-finding Tower MP 3 at Pleinmont has 5 observation levels and had a radar unit on the roof,

The original rangefinders are still onsite and in working order. There is also access to a battery dolmen gun-site nearby.
