It’s the Imberbus next Saturday – IanVisits

The annual parade of vintage buses through a military firing range to an abandoned village takes place next Saturday.

And it’s looking to be the biggest yet, with more than 20 old and modern Routemaster buses joining the fun.

With more buses running, they’ve enhanced the timetable to provide departures every 10-15 minutes from Warminster Station to Imber from 9.45am onwards.

On arrival at Imber, some buses will then carry on to interchange point at Gore Cross, from where they will continue at least once an hour either to Tilshead & Chitterne, or to Brazen Bottom, Market Lavington and New Zealand Farm Camp, with extra journeys operating during the afternoon.

Although the village of Imber was evacuated during WW2 for D-Day preparations, the church was never formally handed over to the military, so it will be open on the day, serving tea and heritage to the visitors.

In addition, the Market Lavington Museum, situated next to Market Lavington Church, is opening for the day.

An all day ticket costs £10 with the proceeds to charity.

The full timetable and details are here, and my review from a previous day out there.
