GHOST VILLAGES AND ABANDONED SETTLEMENTS 

The UK lost over 3,000 lost settlements in the last millennia, 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.
