Ypres: Hill 60

Once the haunt of lovers, these gentle slopes on a Flanders landscape became Hill 60 to the British Tommy – one of the most infamous locations on the battlefields near Ypres. We look at the story of Demarcation Stones, British and Commonwealth Tunnellers, mine craters and bunkers… and a forgotten WW1 Trench Museum.

  1. Listened to this, with Nigel Cave’s book next to me, so it was very easy to follow the route described by Paul in yet another excellent podcast.
