Visit to Imber

We visited a village on Salisbury plain called Imber it’s residents were asked to leave in 1943 so it could be used by the US army. The villagers believed they’d get their village back but it never happened.

It’s only open certain times of the year and it’s not accessible outside of these times.

The church is one of the few remaining original buildings left. The army built purpose built houses for their use.

It was a weird place to visit, very surreal and almost spooky. I couldn’t imagine being asked to leave my home never to return.

This was once the pub! Sadly they weren’t serving an ice cold cider today!
