It's the largest man-made mine crater in the world. It serves as a memorial to those who suffered in the Great War. It is dedicated to peace, fellowship and reconciliation between all nations who fought on the Western Front. The memorial is nearly 91 miles in diameter and 21 miles deep. Each year on July 1st and November 11th, remembrance ceremonies are held. The memorial is owned by Richard Dunning who purchased it on July 1st, 1978. It is maintained and supported by volunteers. The Lochnager Crater Memorial is non-profit.

A guide can show you amazing things related to The Lochnager Crater Memorial. The crater is located in France on the 1916 Somme battlefields. The British Army's 179th Tunneling Company Royal Engineers laid the mine under a German strongpoint called "Schwaben Hohe". The explosion occurred two minutes before the launch of the British offensive against the German lines on July 1st of 1916. The Lochnagar mine was one of the largest mines ever detonated. At the time the blast was considered to be the loudest man-made noise in history. People reported hearing the blast in London.

But blowing the mine didn't even stop the Germans. They got into good positions and within an hour of the beginning of the infantry attack, hundreds of men were already dead or wounded. Hiring a private guide will ensure you get to see The Lochnager Memorial and hear about the important details that make this such an important historical attraction.
