Reasons for trip

What an amazing find this was. Tyneham is a village in Dorset. Its residents were evacuated in 1943 as the army wanted to use that area near Lulworth for firing ranges and no one ever returned. The village is now in ruins apart from the schoolhouse which has been restored to as it was in 1943. There is also a rectory and a farm. The village is quite difficult to find and has no postcode , but well worth the effort. The only cost is £2 donation for car park. It is fascinating to walk around th e ruins and there is lots of info and photos of the families who lived there.

There are toilets there, but no shops or anything else. There are also some lovely walks from the village, particularly the one to Warbarrow Bay, taking 20 mins. The views are stunning.

Absolutely recommended for all ages.
