A remote and beautiful area in the Wolds, England, it was a settlement that flourished between the 12th and 14th centuries, and became abandoned sometime in the 1500’s.

It is a deserted village that was evacuated between the 1950’s and 1990’s. There are ruins around that suggest buildings from the footings, ditches and banks. It can be visited thanks to English. Heritage and studies about the site continue.

St Martin’s Church at the village has survived well due to being used by a nearby village. It was abandoned in the 1950’s, 1959 saw its west tower collapse in a storm.
