Wharram Percy - remains of a medieval village near Malton, North Yorkshire

The most famous and intensively studied of Britain's 3,000 or so deserted medieval villages, Wharram Percy occupies a remote but attractive site in a beautiful Wolds valley. Above the substantial ruins of the church and a recreated fishpond, the outlines of many lost houses are traceable on a grassy plateau. First settled in prehistoric times, Wharram flourished as a village between the 12th and 14th centuries, before final abandonment in about 1500

Would have liked more 'flow' with longer exposure,  but no tripod, so resting on my knee at 1/6s had to do. Tried building a 'rest' out of stones but local insects beat me off.
