Frontzate Brick Shooting Posts Ramskapelle

Frontzate, which today is the cycle path over the railway bed from Nieuwpoort to Diksmuide, was the Belgian line during the First World War due to the flooding of the Yzer plain.
Today we still see several remains of shelters, machine gun positions and medical posts along this line.
There are still several brick shooting posts at this location. With some of these constructions you can still see shooting openings.
