Tyneham Village 5/10

The parish church of St.Mary’s at Tyneham still survives and is is fine condition. It is a small church built of Limestone rubble dating from the 13th Century, the South transept was rebuilt in the mid 19th century by the Rev. William Bond, the church contains memorials to the Bond family of Tyneham House. After the military took over the church was neglected and some fittings were moved, the bells and organ were moved to Steeple church and the Jacobean pulpit to Lulworth Camp. The church is now maintained by the military and has become the site of an exhibition giving information on the history of the Tyneham valley.  (More from Tyneham on Monday)

It looks so peaceful - hard to imagine the military churning up the earth.
Brian Walbey: I don't actually know what they wanted to use it for other than street to street fighting practice.

I'm so glad the structure of the church is sound. Its also good to know that some of its fittings have been re-used locally.
Brian Walbey: On Monday I wil be showing some of the inside of the church.
I like these small churches with simple cemeteries, resting places.
Brian Walbey: It was such a small village one wonders how they found the money to build even a small church like this.
