The Lochnagar Crater Foundation wishes to encourage such visits. One of the reasons for the creation of this Web Site was to make available to teachers and students basic information about what happened on this sector of the Somme Battlefield on July 1st 1916. If a visit to the Crater is to be made, it is important that teachers are able to access information which will enable them to plan in advance to make the visit meaningful and worthwhile.
A successful educational visit requires advanced preparation as the image above of teacher and pupils of Tideway School, east Sussex portrays. This Web Site is devised to assist with such activities. Experience has shown that the best led and prepared school visits have enabled students to grasp the significance of what happened on that July morning in 1916.
