Le Touquet-Paris-Plage Communal Cemetery

Gazetteer No. G0737


Address Le Touquet-Paris-Plage, Pas de Calais France


The cemetery served as a military hospital in Le Touquet during almost the entire war. The design consists primarily of the entrance to the cemetery and the staircase to the two higher fields adjoining the entrance. The most conspicuous feature is the four large yew trees that mark the entrance and the two round plateaux at the top of the stairs. These call to mind the many garden designs by Lutyens, such as the garden of Marsh Court for instance, in which he makes repeated use of the circle form in order to solve changes of angle. In his first designs, he also applied millstones that he incorporated into terraces. (Geurst, 2010, p.354)
