During this initial phase, scaffolding will be erected around the upper areas of the memorial, so that work on the memorial's pointing and roofs can begin later this month.

Once this is complete, both the memorial and the cemetery will remain open to the public - the scaffolding being specially designed to keep disruption to visitors to a minimum.

Please note that the annual commemoration of the Battle of the Somme on 1 July will take place.

The CWGC would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused while this essential work takes place.
