Copehill Down on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, England, may look like a typical English village, but on closer inspection something doesn’t quite look right. The architecture is rather German, and there is not a single living soul in sight. Copehill Down is actually a fake village built by the British army during the tail end of cold war to practice their urban warfare skills and close quarters fighting. Called a 'FIBUA' (Fighting In Built Up Areas) village, Copehill Down is just one of the handful of villages scattered around the U.K., Europe and the U.S.
