Cachaliere Pier

Alderney / Europe

Cachalière Pier is now a ruin near the old quarry.  It was an attempt to open a harbour on the southern coast of Alderney. However, the rocky coast and the rough sea made this very hard and the building of the pier stopped in the late 1930s. The Germans then demolished the biggest part of the pier for fear of Commando raids.  

The naval Artillery Commander’s bunker was built here together with a Freya radar. The latter was protected by a round concrete wall.  Nothing remains of the two 20 mm Flak batteries that used to be positioned here.
