Welcome to Ancre Great War, a new venture in visiting First World War Battlefields and much more.

The Victor Heroes – Saffron Walden in The Great War.

The story of the 159 men on the Great War memorial of the small Essex market town of Saffron Walden who marched away never to return. With a population of just over 6,000 in 1914, just over 1,000 men went to the War, one in every six of the population and one in every six of these men is listed on the memorial.
