Gatteville, Pointe de Barfleur

The guns, 155 mm K420 (f) mle16, of this battery (Stp 152) were at first situated in big open emplacements. Later on, 4 casemates type 679 were built. Most of them are in use as chalets now. The site has several supporting bunkers such as 134, 607 and 502. Along the road to the coast remain some Vf works. The firecontrol center of this battery was built in and on top of a 502 for personnel.
