Cottages and church, Tyneham
Cottages and church, Tyneham
On the left is a terrace of ruined cottages, in the sunlight the south transept of St Mary's Church (not ruined). The village was commandeered by the Army during the Second World War when the area was first used as a firing range. The church and school have recently been restored, and some of the ruined cottages stabilised, so that the public can visit when the ranges are closed (most weekends and public holidays).
