  • This is a small site in the middle of a industrial district. Some of the reviewers complained about the smell, about the water in some of the trenches, etc. We, from this distance in time, can't begin...  more »
  • The Yorkshire Trench and Dugout is a fine alternative for the dead, which in the winter but two week days. Here you can visit 24/24. Though the experience, of course, a little less, but still, this gives an impression. Find in the industrial park, because you drive there are so over. A nose clip can be useful, because the site is right next to a waste processing company, so if the wind is. .. Small but interesting site, where on the net to find one and other is, so you have some historical background to the visit. A guide is not available and a 10-minute are you around.

  • Interesting context for early in the Great War and where the allied front line was in the early part of the war.  more »

  • Presented the stark reality of trench warfare. Went on a wet day, accompanied by smells from the local industrial estate. Despite its small size, it seemed very real.
  • Interesting quick stop with a few signs and smaller than I imagined. Smell from nearby factory was awful.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful peaceful place now, bear to think what 100yrs ago was like, We Will Remember Them
  • 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.
