Notes NOTES: The 13th century Cloth Hall (Lakenhalle) was destroyed during the First World War and reconstructed between 1933 and 1967. St Martin's Church used to be Ypres' cathedral and originally dates from the 13th and 14th centuries. It was also heavily bombed during the war and subsequently rebuilt.
