"WW 1 history of Zillebeke and t Hooge" Zillebeke Favorite Tip by Pavlik_NL
Zillebeke Favorites: 2 reviews and 2 photos
Favorite thing: The small village 't Hooge and the little larger Zillebeke, astride the Meense weg (Menin Road) just outside of Ieper (Ypres) were a valuable price in the Great War of 1914-1918. Day after day for over four years long the fighting raged backwards and forwards over only 300 meters resulting in utter devastation. The battle occured on the grounds surrounding large stately homes, among them the castle that was near the present castlefarm 't Hooghe. Baron van Vinck saw his complete property ruined and destroyed.
