Strongpoint Victoria Tower

Victoria Tower is a Martello Tower and became operational in 1837. The purpose of the tower was to prevent the enemy landing at Anne Port and to prohibit access to Mont Saint Nicolas, protecting Mont Orgueil Castle. The area has outstanding views of Jersey's east coast, with a backdrop of the Norman coast.

More Information

During the Second World War, the Germans modified the tower to include a 2cm Anti-Aircraft Gun, machine gun emplacements and the area surrounding the tour became a German Strongpoint.
