ALL FUTURE PUBLIC ACCESS TO IMBER MAY BE STOPPED Vital message from Neil Skelton, custodian of St Giles Church and the MOD's main liaison for access to Imber - "Many of you will notice that the number of days on which the MoD is allowing access to Imber and St Giles Church this coming August have been significantly reduced. The reason for this restriction is that visitors have been ignoring the instructions regarding trespassing in the restricted areas in Imber village. There is a good reason why no access is allowed. Going into restricted areas puts the individual at risk of injury or even death as there can be unexploded ordnance in those areas. We cannot emphasise too greatly that if trespassing continues there is a good chance that the MoD will find it necessary to completely deny public access to St Giles Church in the future [and the rest of Imber]. We do not want that and we are sure that you don't either. So, when you visit please keep to the public areas and tell anybody who is outside those areas why they should also keep clear. We want to continue to provide visitor access to St Giles Church but we need your co-operation and help."
