GHOST VILLAGES AND ABANDONED SETTLEMENTS
The UK lost over 3,000 lost settlements in the last millennium, though most are little more than footnotes in history. This talk explores those that we can still visit or see, including drowned villages, those lost to the plague or those commandeered by the MOD. One even comes with a musical accompaniment courtesy of the band Grasscut.
The lecture culminates with the exploration of one settlement that should be abandoned but isn't: Sealand, which in 1967 became an independent principality with its own flag, currency and piratical antics. To say any more would be to spoil it.
