Went there on one of the open days. The church and churchyard were very well looked after. The history of the village was very well explained.

Visited on an open day. Very well organised by the friends of the church who are doing an amazing job of looking after the grounds

An amazing experience with the Imberbus event for the classic bus service across Salisbury Plain to the Lost Village of Imber.
St Giles Church is a very special place. Thank goodness for it's survival.
The volunteers were fantastic, the buses were wonderful and we had a great day out.
We can't wait to do the whole thing again.
Thank you to Gordon Lewis in St Giles Church for his knowledge.

Went here on one of the open days over Christmas as it's usually closed as it's on the mod training site.
Wonderful and very enjoyable.
Nice place to walk around very well kept.
Loads of information on site and lots of parking.

Visited here on one of the few open access days to the village of Imber taken over by the military during the second world war. We travelled from Warminster on one of fascinating visit and hats off to all those volunteers on the day, especially the bus crews.

We have waited for ages to make the visit which was well worth it. All the guides and everyone at the church was so kind and helpful. A bonus was all the old London buses so we had great views of the plains from the upper deck.
We parked at Westminster station and joined the red bus there. It was worth paying a few extra pounds for the day ticket which allowed us to spend as much time as we wanted riding about.

interesting. history hanging on by a fingernail only preserved by those dedicated people calling themselves the friends of St Giles. difficult to get to and only accessible a few days every year but worth planning a trip

This wonderful church has managed to survive despite being surrounded by a military training ground since the village was evacuated in 1943. Now being looked after by the Churches Conservation Trust it has slowly been brought back to life with many of its historic features uncovered and its bells restored to their rightful place. It must be a comfort to previous occupants of the village that they can "come home" to be laid to rest. The annual Festival of Carols is very moving and well organised with mulled wine and mince pies before being entertained by a local brass band and choral society. It is one of the very few times Imber is open to the public now due to members of the public trespassing off of the marked routes and the MOD being forced to restrict access to ensure their safety. A shame, as always, a few silly people spoil things for everyone else.

Roadside parking only. Access possible with care for those with mobility issues (handrails alongside the path) but good for wheelchair users (a new wheelchair-friendly path has recently been laid). One shallow step into the church.

Visits to Imber, the abandoned village are limited by the MOD, usually a weekend in August and for a few church services at other times of the year. Therefore, careful planning is required to find out when the village is open. Thankfully, the open dates are published on several websites well in advance to aid planning.

It is worth noting that the Imber Routemaster Buses operate on one of the days that the village is open in August. The Churches Conversation Trust WWW has the details. It is quite bazaar to see the red routemasters racing over the plains.

Once you arrive in Imber, it only takes a few minutes to walk up the hill to the Church. I found it strange to see a Church surrounded by a high barbed wire fence, obviously to keep the soldiers out to protect the Church and grounds.

Within the Church there are many displays about the Church, the village and even local wildlife. The was also a stall selling tea and coffee.

The grounds are maintained by the Edington Church and they ensure the grass is cut back around some of the interesting and recent graves in Churchyard.

Even my eleven year old son enjoyed the Church and intrigued by the history of the area.

Imber is a fascinating place, with the Church being the best preserved of the original village buildings.

Overall, a brilliant place to visit and one that you leave wanting to learn more about.

The MOD grants public access to the area around Imber on only a few days a year. Organised trips usually start in Warminster but we went independently along the well-surfaced single track road from Gore Cross on the A360.

You must stay on the road until entering the village. Then you are allowed to walk only along the road, to the church, and to the Methodist burial ground. There’s not much left of the original village, much more of the modern buildings used by the Army for training. The church (open on access days from 11am to 4pm) has interesting features, with fragmentary frescoes and painted sequences for bell-ringing at the base of the tower. Good information displays and hot drinks available too. The surrounding military fencing makes for a poignant contrast between former and present uses of the area.

This is a rather beautiful part of Salisbury Plain: undulating, wooded, and (in the absence of firing) deeply silent. We were glad we arrived early, before the crowds. The Plain is at its best in the slanting early morning or evening sunlight. Catch it if you can.
