The sheer size of this crater (about 90 m across) on the edge of a quiet field, serves to remind us of the horror of the events of 1st July 1916. There is very little to actually see, but you can walk around the perimeter and take a moment to think about what happened there. It must have been terrifying to be near such an explosion (which apparently had very little practical advantage to the Allies).
