27 August

I went to Tyneham village in Dorset today with the Broadstone Art Society. The village was evacuated during the war because the army needed the land for D Day training, the villagers never returned so it has remained empty ever since. The church and school have been restored but the cottages are derelict and the thatched roofs have long since rotted away. The forecast was for a hot day but it rained really hard a couple of times during the morning.
