I went there for the day, and thouroughly enjoyable. For those not familiar, the event revolves around the village of Imber which was requisitioned in 1943 by the Army, the inhabitants were evacuated, and although it was intended to return the land to civilian use, this has never happened, and the centrepiece is the church. For a few days each year, civilians are allowed to visit the church, although the MOD is making noises about restricting further access due to people not staying within designated areas, after some 70 years of army exercises the land is riddled with unexploded ammunition.

Enter a group of bus enthusiasts who started an annual event of using classic London Routemaster buses to run between Warminster and Imber church. The service has now expanded to the use of some 20 vehicles - and well filled they can be - providing additional journeys beyond to various destinations not normally served by public transport including New Zealand farm camp and (really) Brazen Bottom which is the name of a local farm.

Glad you enjoyed it ! ...and the nice weather helped too. I didn't venture out there - I know how crowded it gets. I was photographing the buses and the trains in Warminster.The Imberbus thing really took off after Sir Peter Hendy got involved - he was Boss man at London Transport and is now Chairman of Network Rail. Perhaps more importantly he owns and drives his own Routemaster.
I know the chap who looks after Imber Church - he tells me that last Saturday broke all records - he had 3,353 visitors to the church !! The next day - it was back to "normal" with 1,121 people.

I know this is a train shot thread, may I post this as without this, the charter would not have run.
