Yorkshire Trench and Dug-Out to Reopen to the Public
06 Sep

From the 6th September 2023, the unique historical and archaeological site at the 'Yorkshire Trench & Dugout' in Boesinge will reopen following restoration work. The site includes a shallow trench dating from 1915 and a restored trench with entrances to a deep dugout from 1917. The latter is the only British trench in the Ypres Salient still in its original location.

More than 20 years after the site was established as an educational site, a thorough renovation was necessary. These much-needed works were partly funded thanks to grants from Westtoer and Visit Flanders, but also due to hundreds of generous voluntary contributions through crowdfunding campaigns in the UK and Belgium.
