Loved the street signs with depictions of tanks saying tank crossing. Up in the hills we stumbled on this quite by accident and I am so glad we did
I visited Imber over Easter The weather was quite foul which all added atmosphere to he place It was very very busy with cars parked everywhere Some of the old building's were still there but obviously no Windows or doors One could see that the M O D had moved in ,You could imagine the villagers living a very isolated... 更多
The remains of tanks and troop carriers bring a chilling shiver. The whole place is wrapped in an aura all its own. A must for people to see, and more than capable of silencing a car full of kids !
A quick visit this year having spent longer last year. Luckily the church wasn't as full as last year so I was able to spend a little longer looking at the history of the village. It's still a rather haunting place.

Imber is only open to the public for a few weeks of the year and you need to check the website to find out when. It is well worth visiting, and a unique opportunity to also drive across Salisbury Plain, as well as supporting the Churches Conservation Trust with the Church at Imber.

You are able to walk under the huge Wiltshire skies and see ancient hill forts, burial mounds, ancient trackways and more than likely see and hear Army tanks and vehicles and military aircraft on manoeuvres, so you have ancient and modern mixed together.
