Hkb Westende Plage

Back Koninklijkebaan 160, Middelkerke

This is an army battery similar to the HKB on Kalkaartweg. What is remarkable about this battery is that the light structures are also preserved: there are six open platforms, six Vf personnel bunkers (one of which still has its original German slogan) and six Vf ammunition bunkers to be seen here. Most of the bunkers are covered in sand because the dunes are shifting, but those that are still accessible are very well preserved.
