Public access is granted for up to 50 days in each year, however, as a rule the number of days granted falls well short of the maximum. Public notices are posted on the Ministry of Defence website and in the local press. Access is usually granted during the Easter and Christmas/New Year periods; also, during August. The military training programme will dictate dates of public access in any one year. 

St Giles Church Easter 2018 Open Days

St Giles will be open to visitors between Good Friday 30th March and Easter Monday 2nd April  from 1100hrs (11am) to 1600hrs (4pm) each day.  Entry is free of charge and visiting the church, churchyard and Imber village to learn about the history of the village and enjoy the peace of Salisbury Plain makes a great day out.

The ‘Easter Egg Hunt’ this year will start at 1200hrs (12 noon) and be of a different format to previous years. There will be a short and simple quiz about Imber and its church. Once the question paper has been completed and marked a Cadbury’s Chocolate Creme Egg will be awarded. The decision of the marker will be final, however, a chocolate creme egg will be given for a good effort. The Egg Hunt is open to children 12 years and under.
