Stp. Bamburg

Back Schuddebeurzeweg 27, Middelkerke

Here you can see the remains of the Bamburg Base. There is a large artillery bunker with a well preserved trench system in front with some machine gun posts and Tobruks, small armoured concrete structures with an opening in the top for a machine gun or mortar. The bunkers behind served as personnel, ammunition and command bunkers. The walls of the bunkers are three metres thick, because the groundwater prevented the bunkers from being buried. This meant that they were more exposed and had to be made more substantial.
