Imber village: Imber Court


Imber village: Imber Court, originally uploaded by mike(toons).

Imber village is in the middle of Salisbury Plain and was commandeered by the army in 1943. They promised to return it to the villagers after Herr Hitler had been defeated. The army reneged on their promise.

On certain days during the year the MoD opens the roads across the Plain for people - including surviving village inhabitants - to visit Imber.
