St Giles', Imber opens for Remembrance Day Service

02 Nov 2012

St Giles', which stands dramatically on rolling down land deep inside the Salisbury Plain was evacuated for military training purposes in 1943. Today it is the only functioning building that remains in the ghost town of Imber but it only opens for a limited number of days each year because it is located in a Ministry of Defence battle training area. 

Those interested in attending the service should gather at the Warminster Vedette Post (VP2) at 10.30am to be escorted to the church before the memorial service commences at 11am. Unfortunately anyone who arrives after the meeting time will not be able to gain access. The church will be only be open for the duration of the service on this occasion but will be open for longer visiting hours over the Christmas season.
