We decided to go to Wharram Percy after we had been to Kirkham Priory, as it's only half an hours drive away. The sign post is easy to miss, there is a small car park, and then it's a 3/4 mile walk to the deserted...More

We found this place by accident, passing nearby and happening to spot it on the road atlas. A 3/4 mile walk from the car park, down in to the valley, takes you to the village. The remains are mostly fairly subtle, but interpretation boards help...More

A lovely walk down through the valley of about 3/4 mile, over a rough grassy path. We loved the walk to the village but it's not for buggies or people who may struggle with uneven ground. There are several information boards outlining interesting facts and...More

To be honest, I wasn't really too sure what to expect, but it wasn't this. Wharram Percy had been on our 'to do' list for a while. I was a bit disappointed. There is not a huge amount there: the ruined church was quite interesting...More

I can’t think of anywhere else like this. I’m not aware of other deserted villages on this scale. It’s a big site and it’s a bit of a walk to get to it but it’s interesting and plenty to see if you use your imagination....More
