Trenches at Sherwood Pines

The Sherwood Pines Trenches installation evocatively brings the Great War experience to life. It’s a life-size recreation of a trenches system that visitors can explore. Climb down into the system and investigate the machine gun nests, fox-hole and wealth of information on display.

The project offers a thought provoking and informative insight into the tough conditions endured by hundreds of thousands of soldiers in the 1914-18 war.

There’s an emphasis on biographical information, telling the stories of many of those from the local area who fought.
