Polygon Wood is a large wood, which was completely destroyed in the First World War. There you will find a burial ground named ‘Buttes New British Cemetery’ with the ‘New Zealand Memorial’. It commemorates 383 officers and men of the New Zealand Division. On top of the the 'butte' (hill) you will find the Memorial of the 5th Australian Division. In Polygon Wood there are still remains of several shelters. Each year on ANZAC Day (25 April), the efforts of the ANZAC soldiers are commemorated during a service called 'Dawn Service'. Polygon Wood Cemetery lies on the other side of the road.
