Medieval Village of Wharram Percy (Site Of)

Local nameMedieval Village of Wharram Percy (Site Of)
LocationEngland, UK

Wharram Percy is a deserted medieval village on the western edge of the chalk Wolds of North Yorkshire, England. It is about 1 mile south of Wharram-le-Street and is signposted from the B1248 Beverley to Malton road. Wharram Percy was part of the East Riding of Yorkshire until the 1974 boundary changes.

Wharram Percy is a significant English DMV, although there are remains of others in a similarly good state of preservation.

The earthworks of the village have been known for many years, and outlines of house platforms were drawn onto the first Ordnance Survey six-inch maps of Yorkshire published in 1854.
