The village of Imber
Imber, on the MoD's Salisbury Plain training zone in Wiltshire, was abandoned in 1943 and has been closed to civilians ever since. Just before Christmas 1943 villagers were ordered to pack and leave to provide a training area for troops preparing for the invasion of Europe during World War Two.
They were never allowed to return and the village vanished off the map.

Neil Skelton, custodian of the village's St Giles Church, said: "It was the most we've ever had, we were almost at breaking point."
