If you do a google search on Tyneham Village, Dorset, UK you'll find the story and images of an entire small rural village forced to leave their homes.
The site has a car park and its fine for tourists to visit. You can walk to the beach from there, but note that its quite a walk back to the toilet!)

It was a good thing I stopped when I did last week. They were bulldozing it yesterday and by today it was completely gone.
