What could be more serene than an abandoned village on a cold winters morning.
Believe it or not these shots were taken on the 28th of December in Tyneham. Tyne ham is an abandoned village just inland from Dorset’s beautiful Jurassic coast. The village was evacuated in 1943 as the British Army wanted to use the land for training prior to the D-Day landings. The villagers have never been allowed to return. The village is now on the Army training ranges and access is restricted to weekends and holiday. During the morning of December 28th my wife and I had the village to ourselves, with just our dogs and birdsong for company.
A short walk from the village takes you to the beautiful Worbarrow Bay
I hope you like the photos.
