Trenches through the Ages…

DCIM100MEDIA

 

In conjunction with Oswestry Town Museum we have opened  a brand new exhibition of ‘Trenches through the Ages’ where you can journey through the wars to see the different types of trench warfare from WW1 to present day over ground trenches Mark trenches Mark trenches2 trenches artillery post

 

 

Seen here is Mark Hignett from Oswestry Town Museum whose foresight got this wonderful ‘Shropshire Remembers’ project underway and he is responsible for building the vast labyrinth of trenches which are a representative example of the types of trenches from both World Wars and modern bastion cage walls of more recent conflicts.

Visitors will be able to tour through the network of trenches and visit the ‘HQ’ hidden in the depths of this elaborate network. Each set of trenches is accessible from the other and stretches over hundreds of metres.

 

 

From September school visits will be available for the Trenches Experience, the World War One exhibition, Welsh Guards and combined with farm activities for a full day out

World War One Exhibit

A fascinating new exhibition of World War One artefacts is open.WW1 exhib (1)

A prestigious private collection owned by Matthew Lucas, Historic Advisor to the Western Front Organisation, has been generously made available to Stan Evans of the Welsh Guards Museum for the duration of the Centenary Commemorations
In the exhibition you will find uniforms, headgear, footgear, and weaponry used in the First World War from all the Allied nations; along with a partially reconstructed trench complete with its own ‘khazi!’ (latrine).The ‘trench’ structure has been donated by Blenheim Palace in recognition for help given to them by Stan for an exhibition now showing at Blenheim.Kids can look through a periscope into ‘No mans land’ where the horrors of war are depicted in a stunning mural created by ex Welsh Guardsman and artist Will Kevins. The mural has been specifically commissioned for the exhibition.
You can visit the exhibition during the normal opening hours of Park Hall and it is included in the entrance price. Yet another amazing addition to our diverse activities at the farm.
