Alderney Fly-in 2022

This year’s programme includes the ever popular boat trips, wildlife and fortification walks, welcoming BBQ, Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony. We also have a new central point for meeting during the weekend at PJ’s in Victoria street. However, for many, the big attraction is the simple pleasure of spending a few days on the beautiful island of Alderney. But don’t forget to book your accommodation as early as you can.

11:00-12:30
Guided Tour of The Nunnery, and the ‘Odeon’
Discover 2,000 years of Alderney’s history at the Nunnery Heritage Site. It is the first evidence of military construction on our island and was originally built in the 4th century to defend the anchorage in Longis Bay harbour and the nearby Roman settlement. The site epitomises the way fortifications have been adapted and reused over the years. Tudors, British soldiers and even German soldiers have made this fort their base. Then walk to the ‘Odeon’ a massive MP3 concrete tower built by forced labourers under the German occupying power in 1943. Newly reopened to the public there are 4 floors to explore with information boards and a film of life on the island with eye witness testimony from slave labour camp survivors and German soldiers. On a clear day, the observation levels, one of which has a telescope, offer amazing views to France.
