This beautiful setting honours the men of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment who fought here 1 July, 1916. A flock of sheep graze atop the hallowed grounds.
The large park offers a peaceful walk amidst grass-covered craters and trenches.
The park includes three cemeteries. Not all the buried soldiers have been identified. Here’s a link to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission page for more information.
A visitor centre provides information about the battle. Canadians offer guided tours and information. Signs and storyboards provide additional information.
Following is a video of the site from my YouTube SuttonTravels site.
I took the photos and video 22 October 2018 as part of a Western Front Tour.
