The Lost Villages: In Search of Britain's Vanished Communities by Henry Buckton



In Britain there are more than 3000 lost villages-once thriving communities that fell victim to the pressures of disease, industry, and social and political change. Reduced to ivy-clad remnants nestled in valleys and woodlands, or to weather-worn ruins on moorland and coast, all are echoes of a former age and evoke a natural curiosity as to who lived in them, what life was like there, and what caused their decline. In The Lost Villages, bestselling author Henry Buckton makes a selection of some of the more recent lost villages from around Britain.

In Britain there are more than 3000 lost villages--once thriving communities that fell victim to the pressures of disease, industry, and social and political change. Reduced to ivy-clad remnants nestled in valleys and woodlands, or to weather-worn ruins on moorland and coast, all are echoes of a former age and evoke a natural curiosity as to who lived in them, what life was like there, and what caused their decline.

In The Lost Villages, bestselling author Henry Buckton makes a selection of some of the more recent lost villages from around Britain. Combining rare photographs, personal research and the memories of those who knew the communities before their demise he has been able to piece together their story.  The result is an engaging and timely record  of vanished communities whose stories would otherwise soon be lost for ever.
