Description

Located to the east of Arras, the village of Monchy-le-Preux was deeply affected by the fighting in the First World War.
The caribou of the Monchy-le-Preux Newfoundland Memorial stands proudly on Infantry Hill, where on 14 April 1917 a handful of brave Newfoundlanders repelled massive enemy counter-attacks.
The village is regularly the site of memorial pilgrimages by Canadians and British.
Today, you can still admire a rich heritage: the church, manor houses and farms. Don't forget to cross Monchy Wood, where you'll find a charming neo-Gothic chapel inspired by the designs of Viollet-le-Duc.
