The remains of these fortifications were part of WN33 and are located on the beach between Mont Fleury and Asnelles which was the King Green sector of Gold Beach.
Today the fortifications are in Marais du Bessin (Bessin Marsh) a protected site with no direct access by car. The site can, however, be accessed by parking 1 - 2km to the east near Mont Fleury and walking along a coast path.
