Traces of Overlord in Britain

Traces of Overlord in Britain

It is quite surprising to discover just how many Overlord-related locations or remains there are in Britain - spread throughout the UK. We have collected here details of sites that still have something tangible to be view, whilst also being accessible for public viewing.

We would ask that when visiting any of these sites they be treated with respect. Often, much hard work goes into maintaining many of the vehicles, whilst the physical remnants of sites such as the German battery at Longues can be damaged if care is not taken. Some of these sites may also contain hazards - such as jagged metal or loose concrete - so care should always be taken. Vehicles should never be climbed upon.

There are many more sites of interest to be added here as we visit and photograph them, so please check back from time to time. You can also visit our page with the reminders of Operation Overlord in Normandy.
