A walk to Wharram Percy

Earlier in the year, Ian got a book which features something like 40-odd walks in England. For some reason, it’s taken us almost the entire year to get out and do just one.

As it were only a 20 minute drive away from my house, we started with Walk 9. A 3ish mile route around Wharram Percy – a deserted Medieval Village that was abandoned in the early 16th century.

It was pissing it down, and even with my boots on, not even ten meters down the path, I could feel the wet on my feet…

Other than the occasional sign post on the roads in the area, there’s no indication that this village existed as it’s tucked away in a little valley.

There was an old church, without a roof…

“Can you remember the last time you stood in an a church and actually felt like yer inside?”

I need to do this more often. It makes a change to take photos where people aren’t smacking each other in the head.
