In 1943 the inhabitants of the parish of Tyneham, including the nearby hamlet of Worbarrow, were given just over one month to evacuate their homes.  Today derelict buildings pay tribute to the sacrifice made by this Dorset village.  Historic photographs have been matched to more recent images to compare what remains and, perhaps more importantly, has been destroyed.
