  • Excellent experience, lovely place that is well worth a visit in any weather. Good walks & lots to see. The church is particularly interesting, but the while place is brilliant. The main feeling you are left with is one of remembrance for the sacrifices made by people in times of need, with almost no quibble or complaint, something that would be hard to imagine today.
  • An amazing and emotional abandoned village in the heart of beautiful (and occasionally quite brutal) English countryside. A mixture of crumbling cottages and restored buildings (the church and school house). Some information plaques give you some history of the former villagers and it's easy to imagine what it once looked like. The village and miles around it are now owned by the military and it's a huge firing range now, so check the website to ensure the village is open!
  • Very interesting insight into pre war village life especially the school room. The Church is also very interesting. Many of the houses are ruins but still make an interesting walk. Interesting to see who had the biggest houses! There is also a nice walk down to the local beach.
  • Really rally really great fantastic experience. Not open all year so we felt privallaged to have the good fortune to walk through the village held in a moment of the past but subject to the elements of ongoing time. The coastline is as good as Lulworth and we were luck to have beautiful sky's. A preserved picture of how a village was during the second World War. Highly recommended for walkers and photographers, dog walkers and historians.
  • Beautiful little ruined village stuck in time and a short walk to the stunning worbarrow bay. Surrounded by the breath taking purbecks with miles of stunning walks. Well worth visiting
