4 Comments on “Hill 62 – Sanctuary Wood”

I felt compelled to comment after reading your piece on Sanctuary wood hill 62.

I had the pleasure of visiting this museum and its trenches late in Nov 07 and as you can imagine cold, wet and very easy to stand in a trench and look out at what would have been No Mans and feel the atmosphere.

I can tell you that i felt the atmosphere wash over me and im not too proud to say i shed a tear also!

My only regret was that i didnt have wellington boots or the like to fully enter the underground trench tunnels and so i am planning another trip over later this year or early next year.

Can you recommend any other sites in the area?

I wish you the best and thank you for helping keep this sad history of man still in the public domain.

Regards
Justin

Hi,
Thank you for the comments.
I have just spent a four day break exploring further around that area and will be putting up new pages within the next two weeks; Polygon Wood, Hill 60, Tyne Cot, the Yorkshire Trench and more Museums etc.
It really is quite emotional stuff isn’t it.
Thanks again, Richard
