The Ghosts of Salisbury Plain 1993 Documentary by director Chris McCall about the ghost village of Imber on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, southern England. Imber was evacuated in 1943 in preparation for the D-Day landings and controversially never returned to its original occupants after World War II. It is now part of a military training area.
