These are now features of the peaceful Somme countryside. In total there are 16 walks, including a new one tracing the operations around Mametz Wood, and all the original walks have been fully revised and brought up to date. Walking the Somme brings the visitor not only to the places where the armies clashed but to the landscape of monuments, cemeteries and villages that make the Somme battlefield so moving to explore.

Like other cemeteries in the area, it was well cared for with mown lawn, low flowering perennial plants, and tucked under a grove of perimeter trees. The white headstones had the name of a soldier, his regiment, his vital statistics, and sometimes an epitaph.
Beaumont-Hamel Newfoundland Memorial
Visitors to these 3 cemeteries must stay on roped off pathways; one cannot wander around anywhere on the open battleground like the sheep do who graze the grass to keep it low. The Newfoundland Memorial was different in that the names of the thousands of Nwfld regiment who died here were not inscribed on the memorial and that it was the actual battlefield, still preserved, where the fighting had occurred. It still stands out in my memory. This place like all the others it's perfect and a must visit whilst in the area so much to see, think it's got a trench system but visited so many others.
