Shoot with care
Livestock may be grazing around the site. Take care to not disturb them, ensure gates are locked correctly, and keep dogs on leads. Avoid flying drones over the animals.

About this spot
The Lost Village of Godwick is a quiet spot in Norfolk, and the site of a medieval village. In around 1086, documents show the population was around 20, but by the 1590's this had dwindled so only a handful of homes remained.
As the site has been grazed by livestock rather than cultivated for crops, the hills and hollows marking out the streets and homes survive today, although no actual buildings can be seen - apart from the striking remains of the church tower of All Saints church. Although much of the church had already vanished by the late 16th century, however the tower (having been rebuilt as a folly) was still relatively complete in 1981 - sadly a large collapse then occurred and what you see today is all that remains.
