Your Guide

Poppy Hoyle

I moved back to France in 2018, to the village where I grew up. Realising that so many visit Courcelette with no tourist facilities in the village, I made it my goal to set up a Walking Tour business and exhibition space to continue the legacy of the village.

Courcelette:

One of Canada's greatest battles

Our Facilities:

Offering research and workshops

As well as a range of walking tours, we also offer workshops and research days, from researching your relatives to a general overview of the Battle of the Somme.Our archive offers plenty of research sources and material, as well as guidance for online research.

The village saw total destruction between 1916 and 1918, with 7320 casualties during the first battle alone. Just under 4,000 names on the Vimy Memorial are those who were killed in Courcelette with no known grave.
