Strange facts-Ghost town, Tyneham

Tyneham is a Ghost town in Dorset, the UK
It was abandoned because the Ministry of Defense stole it.

Back in 1943 the MoD commandeered this picturesque village for Our Boys to use as a firing range. The locals were promised their houses back after the war, but to this day its still owned by the army. Only a few crumbling and bullet-ridden buildings remain. Known as the village that Dorset lost.
