We visited Ranville on the last afternnon of our four day rour of Normandy and the D-Day beaches. We had just been to the Musée de la Batterie de Merville at Merville-Franceville

We only had a short time here and only had chance to visit the CWGC Cemetery.

The principal purpose of the trip was to visit the World War II beaches of Normandy. The beaches cover an area of over 60 miles and so we based ourselves in Bayeux, which put us in a fantastic central location.

We packed into our short stay the following villages and towns Arromanches-les-Bains for Gold beach and the Mulberry Harbour, Sainte-Mère-Église for the church, Utah beach and the US Airborne museum, Maisy for the batteries at Maisy and Pointe du Hoc, Colleville-sur-Mer for Omaha beach and the American Cemetery, Courseulles-sur-Mer for Juno beach, Bénouville for Pegasus Bridge and the Memorial Museum, Ouistreham for Sword beach, Merville-Franceville-Plage for the gun battery and Ranville for the CWGC Cemetery.

We were based in Bayeux and this was last day our our tour as we headed back to the ferry at Ouistreham.
