TYNEHAM, England: Explore Britain's southern coast carefully and you can still find relics of the dark years when the country awaited Nazi invasion: abandoned radar stations, tank-traps lost in farmers' fields, half-hidden concrete bunkers overlooking wide, shingle beaches.ThenThe first glimpse of this tiny Dorset village is from the long, steep road that takes you from sweeping views of the coast down into a small, wooded valley.Baking in a Mediterranean-like heat wave, the ruins do have the feel of an archaeological site, an ancient settlement that had met an apocalyptic end.For more than a thousand years, its residents had eked out a precarious living from land and nearby sea.Since then, the roofs and upper floors have collapsed; the doors and windows fallen out.It may be small – more hamlet than village – but a visit is utterly absorbing. The schoolhouse has been restored to look exactly as it would have, in the early 20th century, and St. Mary's church has been carefully maintained.
