This section displays a selection of photos taken around the battlefield. The map shows where each of the photos were taken. The tour starts on the D947 heading into Vieux-Berquin, parking at the church in Vieux-Berquin and then walking around the battlefield. To walk the route described takes the best part of 6 hours with frequent stops. If you want to visit the cemeteries at Aval Wood or Outtersteene, these are best done in the car after the main walk. If you click on the photos to open them up, you’ll see descriptive text to explain what you’re looking at.
