Firstly, thanks for your clicks, comments & votes on my previous upload, Thames Reflections for which I'm most appreciative. Thanks especially to Mike (Mike Smith) and Steve (Sparrowhawk) for their UAs which I value greatly.
Secondly, I'm sorry I was unable to provide any C & C the last week as I was away in rural Dorset. The B & B which I stayed at didn't have any Internet access.

My upload today are of some images from Tyneham Village in Dorset. (more info below). Indoor images were taken in natural light & without tripod.
v1. The History Barn is used by community groups and schools to help explain the history barn buildings in its historical & environmental context.
v2. The abandoned primary school where time seems to have stood still with books still open waiting for children to return.
v3. The village church of St Mary's
v4 . Some abandoned cottages

Tyneham has come to represent, in many people's minds, a symbol of lost, rural England- a small community dependent on traditional trades, where life was hard but the setting tranquil and beautiful. Tyneham and the surrounding area was evacuated in 1943 to allow Allied troops to exercise in the build-up to the Normandy landings during WW2. The villagers and the estate's owners, never returned as the village was retained as part of Lulworth Ranges for artillery practice.
The sacrifice of the villagers not only helped the war effort, but has inadvertently, preserved a corner of "old England" for the benefit of future generations. For decades it remained largely unseen, gradually returning to nature until the mid-1970s when the Ministry of Defence agreed greater public access on weekends and holidays. In 1994, the old school was reopened as a museum, restored to how it looked in the 1920s. Work followed on the church and many of the cottages with a series of displays explaining village life under what was, to all intents and purposes, the last vestiges of feudal England.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
