Visited with 2 children aged 7 & 10. They didn't really understand the significance of the hill and found it a bit boring though they were interested in the pill box bunker. There's a board walk, so probably suitable for wheelchair users. Take the little paths into the woods and try and understand how so many lives were lost at... More

When we visited here 17 years ago, there was no access. Foot and mouth concerns. My son was 11. On this visit we were able to enter and it was very much worthwhile. The story of this landmark is gruesome but captivating. It has been preserved very sensitively and in this quiet moments it's possible to transport oneself back to... More

This site was a horrendous battlefield during the Great War and fought over by the French, Germans and British. In June 1917, two massive mines were fired under Hill 60 and at the near-by Caterpillar leaving enormous holes. This is the real place featured in the film BENEATH HILL 60 with the book of the same name giving further information.... More

Could any small piece of land change hands more often in the First World War. Can't wait to watch the movie "Beneath Hill 60", we are told it is an honest depiction of the battle here. Loved the Aussie Memorial Plaque from WW1 with bullet holes from a German soldier in WW11, doesn't get more real than that.

It was a nice way to remember the soldiers diring world war one although there is not much there anymore as it has been filled in

Very moving part of the WW1 battlefield sites. Visited here along with other sites in the region. These places really are a must see to understand the sacrifice made by many young men on both sides.

A very moving place to visit, the grass and trees have grown and softened the remains of what was clearly a ferocious battle.

The ground surrounding is still cratered where the shells fell. Just walking around here you'll find it hard to fathom how anyone survived. Words can't describe it, it's a just visit place. Learn a little in advance so that you can better appreciate it.

We went as part of a tour which as we knew relatively little was a good idea. It is a sobering place and it is hard to really imagine the horror of what happened there until you start to think of still lies beneath your feet.
