Il Marnisi Position Finding Station

Posted on April 29, 2024 / 2
Listing Type : Malta Pillboxes
Location : Malta

Il Marnisi Position Finding would appear to have been a Position Finding Station and Fortress Observation Post.  Site visits indicate the existence of a heavy duty rectangular concrete observation bunker with a roof some 8-inches think. Adjacent to this observation bunker is a two storey structure with a balcony on the first floor.  It it thought that this was a platform for some sort of observation devise with double steel doors into the main building.  There is an armoured cable from the ground floor to the top floor, clearly visible on the South side of the building.  Adjacent to this there is a small cluster of buildings that was probably barracks, stores and a garage.  It has recently been used as a farmhouse.

Little is know of this site, so any information is welcome, john@pinkroutes.com.  From the quality of the observation bunker, and the excellent views over the whole of the bay, it is apparent that this was a high level observation and command site.
