Duckboards were sometimes pilled up on top of each other in three layers (right).

Cross Roads is named after the nearby farm, which used to be called “Cross Roads Farm” by the Commonwealth soldiers. The excavations of this part of the British frontline are the most extensive so far undertaken. Here we were allowed to excavate quite a large area. The land was hired from the same owner of the “Canadian dugouts” site. The nearby road was also Admiral’s Road (which continues to the Turco site). The British cemetery near the site is Track “X” Cemetery.
