Tynehan Village
Tyneham is a ghost village 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 commandeered just before Christmas 1943 by the then War Office for use as firing ranges for training troops. This measure was supposed to be temporary for the duration of World War II, but in 1948 the Army placed a compulsory purchase order on the land and it has remained in use for military training ever since
