The village that time forgot: Imber was evacuated during the war and residents never returned
Video report by ITV Meridian's Mike Pearse on the town the lain forgotten since the war.
Visitors have today been given a rare opportunity to visit a disused village in the middle of Salisbury Plain.
Imber was evacuated during the war and its residents were never allowed back.
Public visits are only allowed once a year by the military.
During the war it was evacuated to give American troops space to prepare for the D-Day landings.
But 150 residents were never allowed back as it became part of the military zone. Today the houses and village church still remain.
The bus service was the idea of Network Rail Chairman Sir Peter Hendy.
The village is still used for training and a campaign after the war to allow people back to their homes came to nothing.
Despite the British weather, today's visitors said it was worth the trip to get a glimpse of this usually hidden part of Salisbury plain.
