Part of the Maginot Line, the Abris (Shelter) of Bockange was a command centre and barracks for around 100 men. It is semi-sunken and the upper floor houses a telephone exchange, Officers’dormitory and ventilation equipment. On the lower floor is the mens' dormitory, kitchen, water tanks and generators.
The local society l’Abri de Bockange took the site over from the French Army in 1991 and has worked extensively since then to restore the site. Details of opening hours for visits are on the association’s website
