Residents in a small village near Falls Village resort in southern England have been allowed to go outside to explore their town and its history.
The town has been closed to visitors since a spillage in 2012 left two men dead and more than $6 million worth of equipment and buildings damaged.
Residents had to be evacuated in February, after an estimated 1,000 residents living nearby began to experience health problems, including fevers and respiratory problems, according to the Telegraph.
Now, in the summer, the town’s main shopping street is open, with shops, restaurants and even a cafe.
The village of Falls is nestled in the hills of St. Helens, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of the British capital.
It’s part of the St.
Helens National Park, and is home to some of the most spectacular and scenic scenery in England.
But the town is closed to outsiders and residents have been encouraged to explore and observe the town in the spirit of local tradition.
Residents were given the option of being treated in hospital, but many chose to stay home and be outside, according the Telegraph, which spoke with resident, Jamie Hines, who said that when he was evacuated from the village in February the town was quiet, “no one was around and no one had a plan for the future.”
Residents said that the townspeople and local authorities “told us it was OK to do it, and we did it,” Hines told the Telegraph in an interview.
He added that he had visited the town for the first time in a while since 2012, when he began suffering from fevers, so he wanted to see what was still there.
When I was first evacuated from St. Helena, we were just trying to get through to our home, he said.
When you’re in a town, it’s really difficult to get out and see what’s still there, and you get used to it.
“I was so shocked and disappointed that it wasn’t just me,” Hine said.
“The village was empty.
The shops were empty.
We didn’t have anyone there to talk to, and the shops were full.”
He said that he felt a connection to the community through the small community that lived in the area, and that it had been “terrible” to have to be “moved around like this.”
The village has been in trouble before.
The Daily Mail reported that a spill was caused in 2000, when a sewage system failed.
After the spill, a flood killed some 300 residents and the village was forced to relocate to a new town.
After a few years, the village reopened and residents had a second chance at rebuilding.
The Telegraph reported that residents were given three months to leave, but residents said they were not given a choice of staying or being relocated.
The newspaper also said that people were not allowed to stay in the village during summer months, because of the risk of flooding.
The villagers, who have lived in Falls for more than a century, were invited to a party in the town last year to celebrate their new lives, according an article in the Telegraph: Residents and visitors were invited for a celebration in the Falls Village on Sunday night, and were allowed to wander freely and enjoy a picnic at a local golf course, which has been restored to a state of pristine condition.
Residents said they would also like to see the village reopen for tourists, as it had previously closed.
“We were hoping that people would come and have a look, but sadly not,” Hinem said.
The people who lived in St. George, a small town in Scotland, are also planning to return to the town.
But they are not allowed.
The local government of St George has said that St. Georges residents should consider themselves lucky to have escaped the damage caused by the spill and the floods, according The Guardian.
The BBC said that “there has been no indication that residents will be able to return.”
