JBee Posted 2 September , 2019 Share Posted 2 September , 2019 Hi again guys. So, I'm finally here in Bernafay Wood after a long drive from Sheffield to Dover yesterday and a short drive from Calais this morning. Thanks to all of you who gave me help and advice prior to this trip. I can't believe how easy it all was, smooth ferry crossing, easy drive down the A26. Missed the A1 turn off to Baupaume but found it again eventually and also found a few new cemeteries on the 'new' route. Had a walk in Delville Wood this aft. Just me and one rather surprised young deer. Not a soul around. It was peaceful and tranquil and not as intimidating as I'd expected it to be. Then Guillemont cemtetery en route to Bernafay bnb. Had a slow stroll in Bernafay wood prior to dinner this eve. Lots of trench lines still showing, plus craters but again, no unpleasant feeling. Just tranquil. Lots of pics to upload. Early night tonight then Serre tomorrow to see the Sheffield lads, bless 'em. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
