It is difficult to imagine today that Wharram Percy would have been a busy village between the 12th and 14th centuries. Now managed by English Heritage, many of the buildings that helped to make the village flourish have gone, with only remnants visible as excavated sites, ditches or banks.
What happened to the village and its inhabitants? Find out more with the Wharram Percy History Detective Tracker Pack, which brings to life the stories of this ‘lost village’ for the whole family to enjoy. The Tracker Pack contains fun and engaging activities along a short route, offering the chance to explore the history and wildlife of the local area. Discover what life for the villagers was like; imagine how the village would have looked in medieval times; learn about how it came to be abandoned in 1500. The Tracker Pack is available to hire from Malton Tourist Information Centre for £5 (free hire on Wednesdays).
