I'm trying to work out how the current roads of Hulluch relate to the trench map of 1915. I'm specifically looking for trench map reference H13 4.2 and H13 4.7 (just west of the Lens - La Bassee Rd)

Thanks

Gary

Are you in the area of Bois Hugo? Bear in mind that most of the 1915 maps aren't that accurate. The roads around there haven't changed thast much, with the exception of the Hill 70 complex

Try the National Library of Scotland overlays:

Use the slider on the left to alter the transparency of the overlaid trench map.

As Michelle says, most of the roads match up very well on later maps. This one's from 1917:
