BEG: Miscellaneous Bunkers & Ruins, Peaks Island
Found scattered through the woods on the hills near the middle of the island and down into the low wetland forests on the seaward side of the island, are numerous ruins of old bunkers and other military sites from the first and second World Wars. Some of these have fallen into piles of rubble and can be found almost taken back by the forest, while other places have been (or are in the process of being) turned into modern homes.
