Visit to Tyneham Village June 2012

Last june we visited Tyneham Village. “Tyneham was a thriving rural community until it was taken over by the army during World War II when the entire population was evacuated, never to return. Most of the village is now in ruins, but the school room is still laid out as it would have been in the 1940’s”

Tyneham is situated five miles by road east of Kimmeridge, nestled in a remote valley reached via the army ranges. (The information was taken from the Rough Guides to Dorset, Hampshire & the Isle of Wight)
It is an amazing place well worth a visit.

    1. Dear Paul Hodge,

      Thank you very much for your comments. I will read your short story in the next few days as I have just returned from a trip to France and I have a lot of work right now.
      Thanks once more for taking the time to drop me a line. ( I love the small village of Tyneham and was quite sadden by the story of these families being moved and never to return )
      Kind regards,
      Jean- Pierre
