The Lost Villages of England by Maurice Beresford
Locating the sites of England's "lost" villages, this book 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, listing the villages by county. The text combines the study of local, social and economic history, geography and domestic architecture.
