"The Trench"

I heard a runour that when the filming of "The Trench" was over the local people took over maintenance and are planning to open them to the public. I think they were near Cambrai and as I am planning a battlefield walk there I thought I might have a look. Does any one know if this is true and who to talk to ?

The trench is near Havrincourt. Contact Phillippe Gorczinski at Hotel Beatus, Cambrai. He owns the site, is very enthusiastic and might even show you around.

Hello,

I've seen "the Trench" (both on TV and the location) and I must say I wasn't too impressed (by both)...

Philippe will not show you The Trench. Although he now owns the site and has plans for its future, he continues to put his efforts into the Deborah Museum, and the new Memorial at Flesquieres Chateau. He regards the Trench as rather a trivial distraction from real history!
