Entry Point North + Yorkshire Trench & Dug Out

The point of entry in the north is the reconstructed farm Klein Zwaanhof. The farm is located amidst the ruins of the Second Battle of Ypres, on 22nd April 1915, known as the Gas Attack.

The creation and development of the Northern Salient is presented together with a number of portraits of war poets such as Canadian doctor John McCrae and Irishman Francis Ledwidge. The walking route reccies the zone of Pilkem Ridge and runs along the Yorkshire Trench & Dug Out site (reconstructed trenches - Bargiestraat) and the Colne Valley and Caesar's Nose military cemeteries.
