WHARRAM PERCY Deserted Medieval Village

WHARRAM PERCY Deserted Medieval Village
WHARRAM PERCY Deserted Medieval Village

Famous and fascinating deserted medieval village, in use for 5000 years and definitely occupied for at least 600 years before being abandoned in the 16th century. There is not much to see except the ruined church and the outlines of houses and streets, but it's an intriguing place and there are some good information boards.

Use a map.  It is a walk of about 3/4 mile over an uneven path through farmland from a car park off the B1248 - can be muddy.

Free entry.  Absolutely no facilties whatsoever.
