Restored WW1 Trenches
Throughout Babington Woods and the lower slopes of Wendover Woods, extensive evidence can still be seen of the military activity that was undertaken in the area during the First World War. Learning to dig trenches was an important part of a soldier’s basic training before he was sent to the front and evidence of this remains in the form of long connected shallow ditches, the remains of once deep excavations.
A small section of this trench system has now been fully restored at RAF Halton. Click here to learn more about the restored trenches.
