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.

A significant war event has been fittingly recognised in this immaculately maintained memorial. Worth a detour.

we made a road trip from Paris to Vimy, and along the way stopped at multiple craters and war sites. Arras, of all the towns offered us the most and this crater is amazing. the preservation of the site is impeccable.

This was such an unusual cemetery because I had never seen something like this. It was beautifully built and well looked after. Bless them all and the earth.

I had an interesting time finding this Canadian cemetery. There is no sign at the turn-off. Note: If you are traveling from Neuville-Saint-Vaast to Thelus, along the D49, take the turn-off to a construction site on your right, before you go over the bridge crossing the A26/E15. Then take a left hand turn down a gravel road and the cemetery... More

Saw this from the road as we passed, turned and went to visit. Well what can I say, after visiting both Vimy Ridge and Thiepval. This tiny tiny memorial is just mind blowing. Please visit and just sit quietly in remembrance.

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.

Not a cemetery in the sense of having gravestones, the burials were actually inside a large crater which then became a memorial to the dead it contained. Located in the middle of nowhere really, but no less attractive a spot for all that. Immaculately maintained as are all CWGC sites.

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.
