TYNEHAM

TYNEHAM
TYNEHAM

Probably Dorset's most famous lost village, frozen in time.  In 1943, the villagers were ordered to leave their homes so that the area could be used for training; they never returned.  Only empty buildings remain, plus the preserved school and church, offering a fascinating insight into life in isolated communities in the first half of the 20th century, together with an evocative air of sadness.

Check opening times carefully - the area is still used for military training.
