Walking this section, you will pass through the famous region of the Somme and have many opportunities to visit war memorials and cemeteries from both World Wars.
This walk is through tranquil countryside and woodland and it is hard to imagine the devastation that bombarded this area particularly during World War 1.
Arrive into Arras. This architecturally visual feast is a sight to behold for its Flemish and Baroque buildings. It also has a very well preserved military history from both World Wars and has France’s largest military cemetery as well as a remarkable monument to 58,000 soldiers called the Ring of Memory. Just north of Arras there is also the Canadian War Memorial which is in memory to all Canadians who fought or gave their lives in World War I.
