A walk which takes in the countryside around Merkem, south of Diksmuide.  During the First World War, Driegrachten was a front-line post near the confluence of three different waterways (which is what the name means in Dutch). This area was hotly contested in a series of gruelling battles along the line of the River IJzer. Only available in Dutch.
