Before the Second World War, Tyneham was just one of many small isolated Dorset villages. Its residents led a simple life relying mainly on farming and fishing for their livelihood, oblivious to the future events which would give their home a special place in history.
In 1943 the villagers were moved out by Winston Churchill’s War Cabinet prior to the area being used for D-Day preparations. They never returned.
Today the village is part of the Ministry of Defence Lulworth Ranges, accessible to the public only at specified times. Just the empty buildings remain, trapped in a time warp that has protected the area from many modern developments that, elsewhere, have changed the face of our countryside.
