8. Wharram Percy
If you thought Thixendale was remote, then think again. Wharram Percy is the most famous deserted medieval village in Britain on the western edge of the Wolds. It is about 1 mile south of Wharram-le-Street and attracts many visitors annually.
It was founded in approximately the 9th or 10th century, and was occupied for about 600 years, before being abandoned in the 16th century. It has an eerie yet mystical quality – and is certainly not to be missed.
