    Not my usual sort of thing but fancied a look over Christmas of the little remains of the village of Imber which is used by the MOD for training on Salisbury Plain.
    It is open for short periods over Easter and Christmas

    The village was abandoned through forced eviction in November 1943 and while a lot has been demolished a few buildings remain.
    During our visit the 13C, grade 1 listed St Giles Church was open and was also abandoned at the same time, only in the last year or two restoration work has been done to stop it collapsing....so we could have a look around, i know this sort of crosses the borders of exploring and history so i do apologies if its a bit too much the wrong way..
    Have tried to add a few pictures that are not on the site already.

    Some history....
