The NW corner of an intersection and thus the SW corner of the soccer stadium nearby holds a monument to an American air crew.
Take the D901 NW from Cherbourg then the D45 from Querqueville. After passing Beaumont-Hague towards Omonville-la-Rogue, right after a curve in the road and before descending into Omonville-la-Rogue, turn right onto the road marked out by a sign saying "Stele - 2eme Guerre Mondiale". Go straight about 100m along the soccer field and turn onto the perpendicular road that intersects and goes along the soccer stadium as well. The monument is on the right at this intersection
