The home of a V1 flying bomb launching site, Le Val Ygot is located at the heart of the Eawy Forest. Also known as doodlebugs or buzz bombs, the V1's launched here would have been targeted at South-East England. Disabled by Allied bombing in 1943 before completion, today the ruins are a memorial and the remains of shelters, workshops, and the launching pad with model V1 can be explored.
