Forgotten Imber

There is a fascinating article in the Daily Mail about the village of Imber on Salisbury Plain, abandoned in 1943 to allow US troops to train in preparation for D-Day. Residents were told at the time that they could return in 6 months, but to this day the village has remained closed to the public by the army. They do allow the place to be visited for a few days each year however - have a glimpse at www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2081081/Site-thats-abandoned-World-War-II-gets-visitors-year.html
