Hébuterne is a village which lies about 20 kilometres south-west of Arras. Rossignol Wood Cemetery lies approximately one kilometre north-east of the village, on the road between Gommecourt and Puisieux (D6).
Immediately opposite the cemetery can be seen the large wood known as Rossignol Wood.
Within the wood there are still traces of the fighting.
German Bunkers still line the wood
A shell just inside the woods edge: NEVER TOUCH anything !
The edge of the wood is a zig-zag of pathways
Probably just storm damage
The clump of trees on the horizon is the Sheffield Memorial Park
On the morning of 1st July 1916 troops there came under fire from Rossignol Wood
