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.

Natalie & Michal this morning resumed their journey after two days in Brighton. One day to rest and do some shopping and get a new kayak trolley. Yesterday, they aborted their departure as the weather was against them and decided to enjoy one more day in Brighton as the forecast was better for the next day. Tonight they are near Littlehampton.
