Tyne Cot Cemetery


One of the largest and most impressive war cemeteries in Flanders is Tyne Cot, situated to the south of the village of Passendale.
The name 'Tyne Cot' was given because on the site of the present cemetery, a cottage used to stand. The British soldiers abbreviated the word cottage to 'Cot' and coupled it with the name of the river Tyne in Northern-England.
