  • Wonderful experience, recent history story of a village evacuated for the war effort in 1943. Be advised the only facilities here are a car park and toilets.
  • Make sure you check the opening times before you make the drive out! Being there for live ammo target practice would put a damper on your day... An idyllic village, stuck in time from when it was evacuated in the second world war. Although most of the houses are in ruins, the schoolhouse, church, and farmhouse are like beautiful snapshots of rural life. Paths are relatively well kept but not wheelchair suitable and would be a little tricky if you're unsteady on your feet. Maps, leaflets and postcards can be bought from the church in an honesty box scheme. There is little in the way of facilities (though there is a toilet at the farmhouse) so pack a picnic and enjoy the beautiful woods and birdsong.
  • Fascinating place to visit. Only at the weekend though.
  • You can almost feel what it was like to live there beautifully preserved
  • Moving, beautiful and strange, if you are driving past this is well worth a visit for an hour or two.
