THE LOST VILLAGES OF ENGLAND Maurice Beresford 1983
Among existing villages in the English countryside are the sites of many others which have not been fortunate enough to survive, though six hundred years or so ago they were little different from their neighbours. Professor Beresford has located these lost villages and he describes the occasion of their depopulation and the character of those who destroyed them. Aerial photographs and ground plans of characteristic sites are included, together with maps to show the local distribution of lost villages. There is also a gazetteer, giving listings by county, with map references for identification.
