The Yorkshire Trench

The Yorkshire Trench


Boezinge, Belgium (BE)
The Yorkshire Trench is located near the village of Boezinge (modern spelling, previously Boesinghe). However, it is not actually within the village, which lies to the left or west of the main road from Ypres, the N369, as you travel north. Instead, to reach the site, turn right off the N369 (sign posted Pilkem) and just before a Peugeot garage take another right heading back south along the other side of the canal. This runs by the edge of a large new industrial estate to your left.

The Yorkshire trench is sign posted on a road leading into the industrial estate to the left, but the signpost is rater small and easily missed. Also sign posted on the same turn is Westcompost, an easier sign to see. The road bends to the left, and the Yorkshire Trench site is then around 100 yards further down the road on the left.There is no charge for entry to the site.
