  • Few of these survive, they are well looked after and some are very hard to find but the rewards are big. When you imagine that many of our relatives spent months knee-deep in cold mud actually living in them whilst being bombed and gassed, do you begin to feel the horrors of that war. They were often many miles long, winding up and down the western front and given names like Picadilly Circus and Kings Cross. Worth a visit, try to visit some small cemeteries too, see the names and remember. As they say...... Lest we forget.
  • What a fantastic look into history, there was a guy who gave us a talk about the dig that he did. My goodness, without him we would have overlooked everything. Without that man, we would have never had found out what them boys did. They've been returned to rest. RIP.
  • We had a great visit here. We met Patrick, who was the leader of "the diggers "who discovered this place and the 200+ bodies that were found. Very interesting historical site. Worth your time to go and see.
  • Interesting small little site, hard to find but gives you a good sense of what the trenches looked like.
  • A rare piece of history, a must see. Just 10 minutes drive outside of Ypres.
