THE PATH OF PEACE

The Western Front Way is delivering a new long distance path for walkers and cyclists: putting action into the act of remembrance. Biking or striding along the front between the CWGC cemeteries gives an entirely new perspective: understanding the ground, the lines and the very routes walked by soldiers. The WFW pathway is a trunk off which thousands of branches will grow. The CWGC sites make up a vast number of those branches so pilgrims in their thousands can reach these unforgettable places.
Our role is to ensure commemoration remains current in the twenty first century and together we will do just that.
