Planning a visit to France?

It's tricky finding your way around France, especially when you're driving to a timetable. I have found that programming the GPS coordinates into Sat Nav before you even get there takes a lot of the hassle out of things.

GPS co-ordinates for Bray Dunes, France and other places of interest:

Bray Dunes -
Gold Beach -
Lion d'or hotel, Bayeux. - Just great - it's where the German officers stayed during the war.
Marefontaine battery.
Hinges communal Cemetery - rue de bethune GPS
Longueness (ST. OMER) souvenir cemetery (John Hewson buried here) -,
Mont Fleury gun battery 
Merville battery. 
Pegasus bridge, Ranville
Longues sur mer gun battery

Demi Lune hotel, Ypres - recommended
Somme Thiepval monument,
