Heading NE through Wharram Percy, deserted medieval village
The much-studied village site is on the western edge of the chalk wolds. The village was abandoned in the early 16th century when the lord of the manor decided he needed extra sheep pasture, and so he turned the remaining families off the land and demolished the houses. Satellite images clearly show the extent of the village. LinkExternal link
