News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Not related to Shorncliffe in particular, but I thought this might be of interest.

WW1 Practice Trenches at Shorncliffe

Went to see the World War1 practice trenches at Shorncliffe camp today, best time of year as it is dry and not too overgrown. Is anyone up to date regarding their preservation? Google search results seem to be a couple of years old by the Shorncliffe Trust.
