During the war, Hitler was interested in the Channel Islands due to their proximity to France, just 20 miles away. In 1940, the German military invaded the islands, killing 44 people. The islands then remained under Nazi rule until the end of the war, according to the BBC.

The bunker, which sits along Hitler’s Atlantic Wall defense, remains in remarkably good shape, the Daily Mail reports.

Tommy A'Court from Maillard’s Estates said a surfer opened up the structure three years ago to clear it out and found it to be dry.

“It has a big main room which I assume is where the soldiers used to sleep. There is also an area where the gun turret was. There are some other small rooms around the bunker as well as an escape route,” A’Court told the Daily Mail.
