This morning on the way in to Sarna I saw what I thought was an amazing Bronze age stone formation in the woods as we drove past. On the way back I stopped to look and was I way off target. It was a triple row of stones that were done by hand and were built in 1940 to defend the main road if the Germans ever invaded from Norway. In the woods was a complete defensive trench system, gun emplacements, underground barracks and all sorts. Ventilation systems for underground chambers were still there. There was an enormous metal trapdoor which opened to a ladder to an underground chamber. Unlike in the UK this was all just there to be explored free and with no health and safety fears by anyone.
