Sheffields Memorial Park
Sheffield Memorial Park is situated in the village of Serre les Puisieux and was on the British front line on the 1st of July 1916. This preserved battlefield is the site where many soldiers from the Pals battalions from the north of England fought and lost their lives. The memorial park slopes downhill, and the land still bears the scars of battle, with shell-holes and vague outlines of other trenches still visible today. Within the park are a number of memorials to the various “Pals” battalions that fought here or near here that day.
