  • Came here not expecting anything as just tried to visit trenches within paschendale and couldn't find them. Turned out that the man who had excavated the area himself was there and showed us his entire photo library of bodies and munitions whilst he was working. Then took the time out of his day to answer all the questions we had and took us around the corner to a small museum to show us a film on the matter.

  • This has 3 patterns on the ground. One of the dugout, one trench of 1915 and another of 1917. One of the trenches is accessible today for visitors to walk through. The dugouts can be seen but cannot be accessed. These trenches were made zigzag to reduce the impact of shockwaves.
