Experience for yourself the nature of Trench Warfare by taking a journey through time
In conjunction with Oswestry Town Museum this wonderful ‘Shropshire Remembers’ Project is open to our visitors to tour at scheduled times. The project is the culmination of a tremendous amount of hard work from the project’s mentor Mark Hignett (below)and his ‘small army’ of volunteers. Mark has created a representative set of trenches in an attempt to recreate the very nature of trench warfare
* Explore the construction of World War One dug outs
* Journey forward to the tin lined World War Two trenches
* Discover the ‘above ground’ trenches such as those used in conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan

School bookings available
Visit the Trenches on a school trip and you will be given a guided tour of the huge network of trenches, visiting each section and the hidden ‘HQ’ within the labyrinth of tunnels.
You can combine this visit with a visit to the World War One Exhibit, the Welsh Guards or the farm activities to make a fascinating and informative day out for your class.
