This bunker has been hidden under the sand for years do it was protected from potential vandalism and graffiti. Therefore some of the original German inscriptions are still legible. Since a couple of years the bunker is accessible for the public.
This is a type 630 MG bunker, in which MG stands for machine gun. Positioned at the bunker, the weapon was able to cover the canal, the Scheldewerf and the bridge to the wharf. There are several rooms inside, the largest being the sleeping quarters for 6 soldiers. Through this room, the soldiers could access a small munitions room with a periscope. Behind that, we find the combat area, where the machine gun once stood behind a double-armoured steel plate. Traces of bombardment can still be seen in the concrete from when allied forces attacked the bunker.
