A semaphore on the Nez Bayard
La Hague semaphore, in Auderville, was born in 1860 at the tip of the Nez Bayard. A radio station was soon added, and Branly made his first experiments there. The semaphore was raised by about 33 ft (10 m) in 1908. A path dating from the beginning of the 20th century zigzags between small wooden barriers and stone walls. Since 2009, the semaphore has continuously reported the currents of the Raz Blanchard, as nearly 10,000 ships pass there each year.
