This is a very interesting location. We stopped along the side route in order to have some lunch and wondered among some of the trees to see around the Fort. You are not able to enter the Fort, but it's amazing to see and shows...More

This is a hike through the woods, but stick to the paths. This was a battle field & as the many signs remind you it is dangerous to wander off the trail. There is unexploded ordinance & land mines. It is really interesting to check...More

Take your time to explore this part of the battlefield, from the ruin of Fort de Souville to the Bussiere turret and the Pamart machine gun bunkers. This wood is full of things to see and discover from the battle.

I stopped here and trekked up the steep and stone-filled path until I found a fortification and some other smaller turrets. OK, but I'm sure it was worth the hike.

We were headed to Fort de Vaux when we saw the roadside signage for the Casemate Pamard Modele 1917, which was part of the Fort de Souville fortifications. Without this signage we would not have found the fort since the maps we had in a...More
