GREAT WAR TRENCH EXPERIENCE

This above-ground trench evokes the sights and sounds of life on the Western Front. Part of the educational team is experienced re-enactor/educator, who helps bring the trench to life for visitors and students alike with story-telling and drills.

Enter the trench and look in on the Officers’ Dugout, where the commanders are discussing strategies over a glass of the local tipple! Creep along the trench or hop-up and look over the top – but don’t disturb the sleeping soldier hidden away in his bunk. Sunday 30th September only on the carpark behind Town Hall.
