Walk along the ramparts past the Indian & Nepal memorials, you you find this cemetery tucked away on the corner of the moet. Beautiful spot.

Like all the Commonwealth War Graves Commission sites this one is very moving. It can be reached by a pleasant short walk from the Menin Gate along the old city wall overlooking the river and is just past the Lille Gate. It overlooks the river, is very peaceful, well kept as you would expect and so, so quite - a... More

The Ramparts cemetery next to the Lille Gate in Ieper is a calm and peaceful spot just outside the town centre. It is one of the original WW1 cemeteries & as such the headstones are dotted around rather than in neat rows. Like so much of Ieper it is impossible to imagine what it must have been like 100 years... More

As we were staying very near Lille gate in Ieper, we took a walk along this place, it was a lovely sunny day and the Cemetery was looking at its best, I did manage to find a few KOSB headstones their.

Set alongside the river and a brief and pleasant walk from the town centre this was well worth the walk along the ramparts. Small, but what a peaceful resting place and much quieter than the larger cemeteries we visited - this one was not awash with large school parties which were in evidence at half term.

This needs to be enjoyed as part of the ramparts walk. I believe in total it is 2.6km long, but you can get on and off when you like. This is just one of any number of CWGC in the area and is a in a lovely spot, but it's purpose cannot be forgotten.

This small and very quiet cemetery is less formal than many of the others in area and provide a quiet and beautiful place to think about the devastating loss of life in World War 1.

Stumbled across this lovely little cemetery by pure accident as we were taking a walk around the ramparts. Very well kept and very humbling to go and see it.
