MONT HUON MILITARY CEMETERY, LE TREPORT.

Details

Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemetery at Mont Houn where the dead from the base hospital were buried.
The town contained three general hospitals (the 3rd, 16th and 2nd Canadian), No.3 Convalescent Depot and Lady Murray's B.R.C.S. Hospital. The 7th Canadian, 47th and 16th USA General Hospitals arrived later, but all of the hospitals had closed by March 1919. 
The original military cemetery at Le Treport filled, it became necessary to use the new site at Mont Huon. There are now 2,128 Commonwealth burials of the First World War in the cemetery and seven from the Second World War. The cemetery also contains more than 200 German war graves and was designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield.

Hôtel Trinion.

Details

In 1880 a company conceived the idea of a housing estate on the plain of MONT-HUON and named it DOMAINE DU TRÉPORT-TERRASSES . A huge, magnificent hôtel called le Trinion was built and completed in 1913 (Henry SAUVAGE et Charles SARAZIN, the architects and conceivers of la Samaritaine department-stores in PARIS). A luxury hôtel with 300 bedrooms was to attract the clientele belonging to the rich middle-class and compete with the sea-side resort of Paris-plage. A golf-course and a big garden were laid out but the expected crowds didn't come Consequently the housing-estate wasn't built and WW1 ruined this big plan. It was transformed into a British military hospital during the Grande Guerre and sheltered the soldiers wounded in WW1. After the war. they had to give up their plans and the abandoned estate was used as a camping-site and then became working-class gardens. In 1942, the German army blew it up, pretending it was a landmark to help the allied air-force. The only vestige left is the perron, leading up steps to the first terrace.
