WW1 Replica Trench
Project Category: Informal community group
Eckington Town Team are building within the Eckington Heritage & Exhibition Centre a replica WW1 trench with video and soundscape.
We are describing the effects of WW1 on both the soldiers who fought in unimaginably difficult conditions and on the families they left behind. Families who knew little about the countries where their loved ones were fighting for King and Country, the constant push for people to volunteer to join the fight and the devastating effects of a reduced workforce at home.
We intend to show the impact on farmers who lost men and horses to the war effort and how everyone coped at the time.
