`Since the Middle Ages thousands of towns, villages, and other human communities in Great Britain have been abandoned.
Some places have been abandoned at a single point in time, while others have been gradually depopulated until there was no-one left. In some cases the forces of nature have made a major contribution to the abandonment, but more often economic and social changes have caused people to move away, or the decision of a powerful individual, organisation, or government has compelled inhabitants to leave.
This website commemorates all abandoned communities.’
