WW1 Training Trenches

As part of the events for the 50th Birr Vintage Week, mock WW1 trenches were excavated as part of a community dig in the training grounds of Birr Barracks, the Fourteen Acres. The excavation helped provide further information about the training structure put in place to train men for life in the trenches.

Below is a selection of images from the dig.
