Google Map of Yorkshire Trench reconstruction

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


Yorkshire Trench was the name given to a front line position dug by units of the 49th (West Riding) Division near the Yser canal at Boesinghe in 1915/16.

What can be seen at this site is a whole section of the trench, at its original depth, with fire-steps and loopholes, and the entrances to two sections of tunnels and dugouts. The dugouts probably date from a later period, 1916/17, and due to the water level in this area are flooded and cannot be entered. However, on the surface level light stone 'paths' mark out the plan of the system below ground, which at one point is more than thirty feet below the surface.
