Newfoundland Park

The Park is on grounds over which the Royal Newfoundland Regiment made their attack on the 1st July 1916, which resulted in the Regiment being almost all but wiped out. The ground remains largely untouched and looking across no-man's land you will see the “Danger Tree”, which is believed to be original. Among the memorials and cemeteries located in the park is the Newfoundland Caribou, which stands atop a cairn of Newfoundland granite facing the former foe with its head thrown high in defiance. There is a visitor’s centre which follows the history of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment and guided tours are available.
