This is worth a short stop on a tour of the many important historical monuments in the area. It is important to read up ahead of time to understand the strategic nature if theses places.

An interesting place which provided some appreciation of how close soldiers were to each other when in battle... The distance between German front line and British/allied frontline could have been no more than 5 metres...20 feet. And viewing the bunker just bought another perspective to it....

One of the must see memorials on the WW1 Battlefield Tour. A very moving experience which has been left to nature yet after more than 100 years you can still see clearly where the trenches snaked through the hill along with the craters left by the explosions from the underground mines.

Take a walk around as there is a bunker nearly in tact around the back. It is a German bunker but who cares at this stage. Really good to walk ago over the hill and felt the air. Very emotional to ink how many sons lost their lives there.

This is one of the better places to get a feel for the details of the battles conducted during the First World War. The terrain left by the fighting presents an interesting site in itself to wander. The bunkers and craters are interesting remnants but the stories behind their creation and use are what makes them truly fascinating. Definitely plan... More

Visiting this site gave me an appreciation of what the soldiers had to endure fighting a prolonged trench warfare battle.

We visited here as part of a WW1 Battlefield tour. Our local expert, Soren, explained the history of Hill 60 which made it definitely worth stopping. It is more accessible on foot and people with limited mobility may need some assistance.

There are lots of pictures of the blockhouse , but that, a few small memorials, and some really torn up terrain are about all there is to see

A visit here to see the craters of two massive mines and the memorial to the men who dug the tunnels was very moving. Lots of bits of bunkers remain, including one very rare one in good condition.

Hill 60, named after the position above sea level, so hard to conquer that the horrific result was a mass burial of everyone on the spot. I can't confirm, but the local cafe is not very helpful, not a toilet facility, but no other facilities nearby (perhaps don't need the business?) so it could do with some local toilets building...
