  • GDSF - WW1 Trenches To Remain At Great Dorset Steam Fair Site (Article posted 9th Dec 2014)
    support trench Each trench is approximately 150ft long and 6ft deep and have been created exactly as they would have been on the Western Front in France 100 years ago being of a zigzag formation with duck boarding to walk on tin and wooden panelling on the sides and sand bags lining the top front edge Managing Director Martin Oliver says The exhibitors who participated in this year s WW1 Display have said that our trenches were the best replica system they had ever seen We have made the decision to keep the trenches until at least 2018 because it seems an appropriate tribute to those who lost their lives in The First World War Many of our visitors told us that this year s WW1 Special Display was incredibly moving and it would be a shame to remove a spectacle that causes such reflection before the centenary is over It is hoped that the trenches will provide an educational experience for visitors over the 4 years allowing them to envisage what life might have been like on the front line Furthermore between now and the 2015 show we would like to encourage local schools to contact us and arrange visits so that we can share this experience with them free of charge The Great Dorset Steam Fair site is based on a working farm and leaving the replica trench system in place until 2018 has been fully endorsed by land owner Robin Hooper of Tarrant Hinton Martin Oliver says Robin is very proud to give up part of his farm for 4 years to enable the trenches to remain in place and I would like to thank him for all his help and cooperation I would also like to take this opportunity of thanking Lewy Smith of Bema Cross
