!01 years after the death of Hedd Wyn (the Welsh Poet from Trawsfynydd) in the 1st World War, we specifically wanted to visit his grave and found it a very moving experience. His death summarised the tragic waste of life that occurred at that time.

Visited to see resting place of Hedd Wyn and many of our fellow countrymen. The nearby Sportsman Bar and Welsh Memorial is a must visit for all Welsh people.

One of the smaller CWGC cemeteries, but beautifully maintained as they all are. However, unless you have a family association with Artillery Wood, if you can only visit one cemetery it must be Tyne Cot, whose sheer size is overwhelming
