In Ypres Blind Veterans UK members walk in the footsteps of the First World War men (RT @BlindVeterans: "A War Poem" by blind veteran William Robinson, who lost his sight in Ypres in 1916 http://t.co/eNzp1d9QZr...

All of these areas are likely to need accommodation for disabled and older visitors, travelling with their families to remember those lost in the terrible conflict.
