Great War Sites in the UK

A listing of the extant Great War sites that can be found around the UK. If you would like a site added to the map, please leave a comment below or contact me with the details.

This is the result of a small mapping project that started back in 2009 in a discussion thread on the Great War Forum. The original concept was to collate extant Great War sites within the UK and provide a resource that would be useful when visiting an area but could also help with the recording and preservation of the sites.

Thanks to David Faulder from the Great War Forum, who introduced me to the possibilities of Google Maps and set the initial map up, and the Western Front Association who have placed the map on the Maps page of their website.

One thought on “Great War Sites in the UK

  1. It would be a good idea to add Southend-on-Sea as the pier was used to load ships with supplies and to take wounded men to the hospital on top of the sea view area. The hotels there were part of the army and navy services too. The 23rd battalion Royal Fusiliear also dug trenches for defence there and at Pitsea and Leigh-on-Sea.
