Bald Explorer Goes to Tyneham Village

As part of my exploration of the Jurassic Coast with Dave Ford, we visit the deserted village of Tyneham.

Tyneham is a ghost village and former civil parish, now in the civil parish of Steeple with Tyneham, in south Dorset, England, near Lulworth on the Isle of Purbeck.

The village and 7,500 acres of surrounding heathland and chalk downland around the Purbeck Hills, were requisitioned just before Christmas 1943 by the then War Office for use as firing ranges for training troops. 225 people were displaced, the last person leaving a poignant notice on the church door.
