Article about: Most of the german arms dumps were destroyed by the british with explosives, I remember reading the biography of a british lietenant who was in the advance party to check for booby trap bomb

    Default Jersey and German Relics

    hi,
    i am planning a trip to jersey next month and have some questions. does anybody know where to look/dig for german relics at the island? what about the law? is it legal to dig for relics? do i have to report to some local authorities or do i need a permission? thanks in advance for any helpful advice.
    cheers

    I think you'll be wasting your time looking for relics on Jersey, it's a small Island, plenty of collectors live there and there was no fighting, so you'll be very limited to what you might find.

    Just enjoy the island, it's a great place for a few days holiday.

    Cheers,

    Steve

    The hospital is definately worth a visit,i have taken my detector to various bunkers on the North coast and not found much,few bits of iron really. If you goto Plemont bunkers on low tide and walk down cliff paths you can get a good look at the flak,and anti ship gun barrels they tipped over the cliffs after the war. And round the corner from the road to the hospital is a path to get above it,i found an old folding shovel there on a look out post i never knew existed,if ya want any info PM me,i can give ya some directions to some nice bunkers worth a look...

    Hi in Jersey has already said,no point in digging,but alot to see! Plemont point is one off many sites to view,over the cliff walk down to shore line to view anti aircraft barrels,wheels still with rubber tyres,hospital underground, st peters to
    view war bunker,alround the island there is a lot to see.I suggest you purchase
    one off many books that are on sale which show all German sites,maps etc.
    Enjoy your stay!

    Whats the Law for detecting in Jersey ? I assume it is the same as the rest of the UK ?
