  5. Oh, those poor villagers – to have to give up such beauty. Why weren’t they allowed to return?

  6. I went to Tyneham village with my Mum back in the summer. It’s a lovely place. We didn’t make it as far as the beach that day as Little Lady was rather grumpy, but the quaint village was nice to explore. We did have a bit of an adventure trying to find the village though as there aren’t any signposts!

    • Yes it is a bit hard to find! I will be posting pictures of the village soon – I am looking forward to taking my grandchildren, I think they will be fascinated by the school. Hope you get to the beach next time you go – it really is fabulous!
