The Yorkshire trench & dug-out is a restored trench near the city of Ypres with entrances and exits from a 1917 'deep dug-out', just as it looked during the horrors of the First World War. You just have to imagine the stench of the dead, the poor hygiene, the bombs, and the mud. They were terrible places for soldiers who often stayed in them for months in all weather conditions.

Today you can take a walk through the area through a series of information panels and the original floor plan of the dug-out. It shows you the trench warfare of soldiers in the great war. The horror of a horrible time becomes visible to the visitors.
The trenches are freely accessible every day in the Industrial Zone alongside the Ieper-Ijzer Canal Address: Bargiestraat, Ieper.
