Monument record MYO2215 - Walmgate Stray Trench 2


During the course of the First World War, Walmgate Stray, like many other public open spaces, was utilised by the army as a training area, providing soldiers with experience of digging trench lines and possibly of combat within them. The remains of four lines of practice trenches, all front line 'firing trenches', have been identified spread out across the Stray. Trenches 2-4 are located in the northern and central parts of Low Moor.
