A view at a part of the trench system. Take note of the corrugated iron, used to cover the walls.

The movement between the frontline trenches was ensured by the presence of thin communication trenches, five of which have been excavated. Their floors were generally made from duckboards although in one of the excavated examples, the soldiers had placed a layer of bricks.
One major trench, broader and deeper than the others and reinforced with corrugated iron and A-frames could be followed through the entire excavation site. Large fragments of natural stone were used to replace some duckboards. At several places it crosses older trench segments and it represents the actual frontline between the Second Ypres and the Third Ypres. The remains of a shelter found at the rear of the trench are of particular interest. At its front side a similar, yet larger structure was excavated, probably a machine-gun post.
