What is adventure? To me it used to be something involving travel, climbing, hiking, paddling, challenging! I think you get the picture.
My latest “adventure” was a bit different but quite fun none the less.
Since I’m now living with an archaeology student we went to visit the deserted medieval village at Wharram Percy. As it turns out it was quite interesting even if there is only one standing building left, St. Martin’s church, and the stone foundations of the old village can still be seen in the surrounding fields, if you know what you’re looking for.
As only Church of St Martin is still standing it was of course the main focus for exploring and taking photographs. The church was completely rebuilt in the 12th century and expanded in the 13th and 14th century before it was renovated again in the 15th and 16th century, just before the final families were forced out of the village to make room for sheep to provide a bigger income for the then lord of the manor.
The whole site is now in the care of English Heritage and more information can be found at their website.
I hope you enjoyed the photos and I encourage you to leave a comment or ask a question 😉
