The sleepy village of Imber, nestled deep in the heart of Salisbury Plain, will once again open its doors to visitors this summer.

From 6pm on Friday 25th August to 8am on Tuesday 29th August the public will be able to access the uninhibited village, which continues to be used as a military training area. Although training operations are not under way when the village is open to the public, the DIO (Defence Infrastructure Organisation), which manages the site for the Ministry of Defence, has a responsibility to ensure that anyone visiting this historic village has a safe and enjoyable experience.

Visitors making the journey to Imber are reminded to stick to public rights of way during their visit and to those areas of the village where it has been deemed safe. Additionally, the public is reminded not to enter any buildings that are marked ‘unsafe’ or approach or climb on any tank hulks.

The next open day will be Saturday 11th November.
