Welcome to Norfolk Deserted Villages

(A sub-web of Literary Norfolk.)

Find out more about Norfolk's lost villages. The county has over 150 deserted villages - more than almost any other county in England.

This site will examine the main abandoned locations - look at the causes for desertion and bring together documentary and archaeological evidence to help explain why these communities disappeared.

St Edmund, Egmere

The Remains of St Edmunds Church Egmere

They stripped out the bells
From your tower and pulled down
Your nave and chancel.
