We’d come across this cemetery quite by chance having come the back way from Fricourt heading for Mametz. As usual: quiet, well-looked after and commanding a view up the vally to the hills beyond. Yet another humbling tribute to the fallen on that first day...More

Another humbling and peaceful resting place for those of the Devonshire regiment - the plaque explains the comradeship of the fellow soldiers who laid the fallen to rest.

The inscription says it all really "The Devonshires held this trench, the Devonshires hold it still". Poignant and moving - it makes you think of their sacrifice and puts our troubles into some context.

Set behind some trees and hidden from the road the Devonshire cemetery is fairly small in comparison to others. It is on the site of an old communication trench. Immaculately kept with a monument outside the main gate. Worth a visit.

This is a very interesting cemetery as it has Captain Martin and the poet Hodgson buried in it. The Devonshires had modelled the terrain so new a machine gun on their flank would cause problems. they still attacked and it shot many of them down.
