Dig First World War Practice Trenches
Penally WW1 Trenches
3rd June - 21st June
Before being sent to the Front troops were dispatched to locations in Britain to practise digging trenches and experience aspects of warfare they were likely to encounter in France and Belgium. Some of the best preserved of these trenches can be found on the coastal cliff tops at Penally in Pembrokeshire, and are designated a scheduled monument. Our recent research has shown that many more examples existed in and around Penally. During this project will we survey and excavate parts of these trenches with the long-term aim of enhancing their long-term protection.
