Imber Ranges, Salisbury Plain

Imber Ranges
Imber Ranges

On Salisburyplain, you can feel all alone even though you're in Southern England. Drive from Melksham through Devizes up on to the plain, and you're in land that's dedicated to military use .... which doesn't stop a great deal of agricultural activity too.

The houses are just shells, and it's used to train soldiers in door to door fighting techniques. Although it's known as "The German Village", I understand that it's likely that skills learnt here will be put into practice in other world hotspots these days.

Imber Village itself is in the middle of the ranges, and out of bounds on all but a very few days each year. Taken over by the Army during the Second World War, it has never been returned to the villagers who used to live there and is crumbling slowly away.
