Worth a visit.

Within a couple of miles of the 'Nine Elms' and 'Arras Road Cemeteries' worth a visit for a period of reflection. Very well maintained.

This is one of two Mine craters that was used by the Canadians for the burial of their troops that fell at Vimy Ridge, so it is a mass grave turned into a very moving memorial and cemetery. There are no headstones just the knowledge that there are 53 burials, five of which remain unidentified. A very moving visit.

The remains of a WW1 mine crater, now a Commonwealth War Grave. An interesting little stop off if you are passing on the A26. Also visit the Lichfield Crater, about a third mile north.

Visitors exploring WWI sites have to go to one or more of the craters. The scale speaks to the power of the bombs and the intensity of the battles. Well worth the short stop.

We only found this while driving by on the way to Vimy. A quick turn around found us in what looks like a car pool parking area. The only way to notice it was the cross. There were no road signs indicating was it was. You can tell it as a mine that went off but you will only find... More
