Interesting area

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 am lucky to live about 10 minutes drive from the edge of Salisbury Plain and have the daily use of a 4x4 vehicle for my work. Having been involved in land clearance / heathland regenoration projects on the plain I know it very well and on a sunny summers day its a wonderful relaxing place to be with lots... More

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 !

Good walking, chance to view across Salisbury plain's Army training estate It's a Wildlife haven, you never know what you will see. Never stray off the path though, stick to the route and Never pick up anything relating to the Army. They used some pretty dangerous equipment.

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.

Having visited Tyneham in Dorset several years ago, I had recently looked at Imber as being the second "lost" village to visit. I had read the history of it online and eventually my wife and I made our visit. The Church was open and the staff there really knew so much about the history of both the village and the... More

Imber is such a unique place that I would urge you to visit it when it is open to the public. This chilling reminder of wartime need to provide realistic training in both rural and urban conflict is both frightening and beautiful. The stark contrast between bullet damaged mock village and the vast open landscape of Salisbury Plain, with its... More

We heard that St Giles Church, Imber was going to be open to the public from 8th-23rd August 2015. It's possible to join the St Giles Church newsletter to receive information about the history and opening times. We were intrigued to go and view this site, which is closed to the public for much of the year. The countryside around... More

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.
