“Musical associations”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

Anybody who loves Vaughan Williams' Pastoral Symphony needs to know that this is the inspiration. It's where, as an Ambulance Driver, he saw the Corot-like sunset over the muddy battlefields.

“poignant memorial”
Reviewed 29 November 2012

you can see the tower from the road to arras, when you drive down towards it you see several large cemetaries, the tower itself is a poignant memorial, isolated and delapodated.

“An historic gem”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

Sadly when we arrived here it was too late to go into the grounds as it was closed. You can however see this Roman building for miles around and close up it is undergoing major work. We will definitely go back another day. Interestingly there is a commonwealth military cometary next to it in honour of the French 4th Dragoons ( I think!).
