This is not only a war memorial but also noted to be a mass war grave as many of the soldiers from both sides could not be retrieved. There is an information board at the entrance then you are able to walk freely around the site, noting the great crater holes and lay of the land. It does at present... More

Was difficult to imagine what this area was like pre World War 1. Now, the contours of the land at Hill 60 gives a better understanding of mine warfare between 1915 and 1917. It was wet and muddy when we visited and this certainly added a small part to our experience of what it must have been like. But to... More

Amazing place to visit, especially the big crater on the opposite side of the railway line. They were refurbishing it when we went but it will be great when it's done.

After having shown our history classes the film 'Beneath Hill 60' I felt that I needed to visit the memorial for myself and bring back some video material to show the kids. Finding the place proved a bit problematic as I tried to drive my nice brand-new Peugeot 308 hire-car along the narrow lanes, desperately trying to remember to keep... More

As mentioned by others change is on the way with paths etc, Before visiting read / visit a museum to understand why this was fought over in such a manner and It all becomes very clear on the ground especially the view back to Ypres. Hard to imagine the tunnels underneath leading up to the crater and around the hill.... More

Very atmospheric - the crater is now such a tranquil spot it is hard to imagine the original devastation. Parts of the site are undergoing construction - ground is uneven around the site - but well worth a visit.

It's now a beautiful park but the holes, remind us of the craters and mortars that exploded here. In fact there is an old mortar at the bottom of one such hole.
