Richard Cartwright - The Somme

The Somme

I have made frequent visits to France, in particular to the areas around the Great War battlefields.

I am usually based at Carnoy, a small village a few kilometres from Albert. This is an ideal location from which to explore the Somme battlefields, and is only a short drive from many cemeteries and memorials, including Thiepval.

I have visited this region in 2013, 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019. Photographs are contained in the Galleries.

If time permits we visit some sites in Belgium - details of these are on the "Visiting Belgium" pages.
