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

Stumbled across this deserted Medieval Village by accident, saw the signposts whilst in the area, so gave it a go. About a three quarter of a mile walk from the car park, but well worth it. Numerous information boards to keep you up to speed...More

Walked here along the old railway line from North Grimston. A place which is isolated and very quiet. Only saw a handful of people all day. Site had information boards which give detailed information.

Now, to reach the village requires a rather long walk down a track, across a field, and over another field. When I visited in the middle of the 2018 heatwave this was easily accessible, but should you visit in winter good footwear would be essential....More

We wanted a nice walk in the fresh air and have to see this was perfect. From parking your car it’s just less than a miles walk/hike down to the village. Nestled in a stunning valley the village itself was quite interesting to walk around...More

The village is accessed by a steep, narrow pathway from an off road parking area. The views from the pathway across the Vale of York were superb (the sun was shining!). The layout of the village could clearly be seen (reminded me of a "Time...More

What a lovely day for this visit to Wharram Percy. It’s a nice walk down from the car park along a fairly narrow rough path with wild flowers all along the banks. When you get to the old farm and church if you look at...More
