We were fortunate to visit with a BBC war journalist and he was able to share the story of this site in incredible detail... be sure to research prior to, or during, your visit.

I have been to the various sites of Flanders Fields many times, but it has been quite some time since I visited Hill 60.
been there recently again and it has been improved much, in acessebillety and information.
The history has become a bit clearer and easier to read and learn about the drama that happened here.

Having read that near to 50,000 people died fighting for or defending Hill 60 I expected something real special.

What I found was an area so small that even standing upright 50,000 would probably not fit in the area.

The crater resulting from what was lots of hard work tunneling was impressive.

Still worth a visit and thinking about.

Hill 60 is a moving place to visit. So many people lost their lives here in WWI and there is a huge crater filled with water alongside it, a testament to the tunnellers and the bombings in the area. It has a walkway which is mostly accessible for wheelchairs and mobility aids. Well worth a visit.

Not very much interesting to see here, but still worth the trouble looking for. It's a bizarre place - so quiet and peacful, but knowing those horrible things happened here... Worth a visit!

Hard to comprehend what life was like for those soliders in the trenches (especially when the 2 frontlines were so close) . This leaves you in awe of the bravery of those men, especially the tunnelers, who fought for freedom.

I discussed 'starring' the war memorials as we felt uneasy collectively as we felt that they are all equally as important as each other.

Despite this if an important piece of WW1 history is visited signage should be used along with directions of a 'hidden' German dugout further into the woods.

Along the wooden slatted trail the Allied and German trenches were embedded with metal slats to show you how near they were to each other.

Due to concentrating walking along the trail I would have missed them due to their subtlety. As my daughter had previously visited this on a history school trip I wouldn't have seen them.

I feel a marker or sign would help visualise them and highlight how near they were to each other. Therefore 1 star is omitted.

Unfortunately this site isn't accessible to wheelchair users or people who have to walk over uneven terrain.

If you look closely on the monument you'll see bullet holes, from the Germans who used it for target practice during WW2.

There isn’t a huge amount to see here but it is worth including in a tour of the area. To get the best out of it, a knowledgeable tour guide probably makes it come alive more than we could achieve on our own. The crater is very thought provoking though, as are the marks on the boardwalk showing the closeness of the German and Allied lines.
