WW1 trenches re-enactment used as teaching and learning resources

on Wednesday, 13 August 2014. Posted in Gabion

Haileybury College in Hertfordshire wished to create a "trench trail" for their students and to share with schools in the area to come and learn about the First World War. Through the Trenches for Teachers project, historian Andy Robertshaw helped bring history alive to include a reproduction trench system complete with two fire steps, a dug out and first aid post along with the supply of reproduction items and teaching pack to enable students to interpret and experience elements of the conflict and life as a British soldier.

The frame work for the structure is made using custom made gabion baskets in 3mm wire.
