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

This village was evacuated in order to be used for military training. The residents were given very little time to leave, and imagined that they would soon be allowed to return. There are a few original buildings still standing here; family homes with their crests still in tact, as well as an old church which is a delight to visit.... More

Imber Church If you wish to visit Imber Church, check opening times on their website or sign up for their newsletter as it is only open during certain days. We found the plain easily enough using SatNav and asked the man on the gate where the church was. We had to follow the road through the army training ground for... More

There’s a village right in the centre of Salisbury Plain that has become something of an enigma; it appears on few maps, is therefore difficult to locate, and more importantly, can only be accessed via a narrow road that the military opens up just a couple of times a year. The road leaves the main A360 at Gore Cross and... More

The Imber range perimeter path runs for miles and miles across salisbury plain and past the ancient village of Imber which now forms part of the MOD's training facility. There is a fascinating history to the village and although you cannot access the village, it is opened up to the public on a few occasions per year. Just Google it... More
