I don't have access to any trench maps, but this is probably an easy one for the experts anyway :

A hand written war diary I have been looking at clearly refers to HAMPSHIRT Trench and I am thinking that it must be Hampshire Trench.

The general location is near Ploegsteert, and Aberfeldy Avenue is also referred to at or near the same location.
