The event is part of the 1917: Empire at War season at the Alrewas site and will see visitors learn about the memorials that represent those who fought a century ago.

A spokesperson said: “The walk will bring to life some of the stories of regiments and units such as The Royal Army Medical Corps, The Light Infantry and The Royal Tank Regiment, as well as provide insights as to why some young men were shot at dawn for alleged cowardice and desertion.”

The walks – which take place at 10.30am and 2.30pm on September 17 – cost £3 and can be booked online.
