In St. Anne there is a impressive Luftwaffe HQ bunker and tower which formed a link in the German coast-watching surveillance of occupied Europe. The bunker is located in Les Mauraiux and is currently used by the Alderney Water Board as a store. The bunker consists of 9 rooms with the five storey observation tower behind it. We were unable to arrange access to the inside on this occasion.
As the mains water supply to Alderney was inadequate the Germans built two pumping stations which fed two water storage bunkers. In addition a small header tank was built on top of the tower to pressurise the water supply to St. Anne.
