As long as you remember the army trains on Imber range and you don't stray beyond the well marked perimeter, one can enjoy walking far from the madding crowd with extensive views in all directions. The sense of peace is only periodically shattered by the sounds of shells exploding in the interior of the plain. A word of caution: there... More

Although it's not the easiest place to find (you have to look out for a not too obvious sign along the A360), it is well worth a visit. We visited on the Easter bank holiday Monday in bright sunshine so lots of people had the same idea. Nevertheless it was fascinating. Just a few of the original buildings remain, the... More

We were visiting Wiltshire when we heard about the ghost village open day. Not being local we had to search as it doesn't appear on any maps we had, but we took an educated guess that Imber Rd in Warminster would lead us to it. It was a bit eerie driving through the military range when there were no other... More

The MOD own the site, so always check when the site is open, normally Christmas, Easter & St Gile's Festive Service. I had wanted to visit Imber village for a couple of years now, but every time I was either busy or away. Today I got to visit. Worth a visit for the church and very little of the true... More

On the rare occasions the MOD open the range and Imber village to the public this is a must see. A lot of history in the church about the eviction of the villagers in ww2.

This is place to come to if you want to appreciate the open spaces of Salisbury plain. It can be a bit noisy if there is a big military exercise underway, however they simply adds a bit of additional interest.if there is no military activity it is very quiet and in summer the sound of skylarks is all that can...

WARNING THIS PLACE IS NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. ONLY OPEN ON PERMITTED DAYS. #Google it# Imber is a lost village on Salisbury plain, taken over by the MOD in world war II. The village consists of breeze block built houses used for urban warfare training. But don't let it put you off. The church of St. Giles is off... More

Moved back to Wiltshire a year ago just on the edge of Salisbury Plain. Had read about St Giles church in the abandoned village of Imber previously and had been waiting for an opening (military access road) to visit. Went 02/01/2015 and should have gone sooner - it is just an amazing place steeped in history - the volunteers in... More

The ex village of Imber is only open to the public on certain days of the year. Don't expect to see original buildings from the eviction during World War Two, as many have been subsequently rebuilt for M.O.D. training purposes. However, the old church (St Giles) is a must and there are photographs of how the original village once looked... More
