Diamond Jubilee weekend

A short distraction to the busy weekend of events, road closures, bus service diversions and river pageants is the occasion once again of public access to the deserted village of Imber on Salisbury Plain.

Commandeered in 1943 and never returned the village itself remains at the centre of a military training location and is a curious mixture of what has been frozen in time plus the construction of other types of buildings.

As ever a bus service numbered 23A is in operation today with Routemasters but making its debut is LT1 which is also in action there today.

Of course I'm afraid I haven't been able to venture out of London this weekend but fortunately I already have news and photographs beamed from Wiltshire so here indeed is LT1 along with RM1005 at Warminster Station before setting out onto uncharted and mobile phone-free territory on Salisbury Plain.
