The magazine “Dorset Life” has featured many articles on Tyneham and some of these articles have been reproduced online. Links to these are provided below.
The first “Dorset” magazine was launched by Rodney Legg in Spring 1968 and featured Tyneham prominently.
The magazine itself was primarily founded as a weapon in his first and best-known campaign: to return Tyneham to the villagers who had been evicted in 1943.
