Seven Deserted Village Sites in Leicestershire

  • W. G. Hoskins


Some years ago I wrote an account of all the deserted village sites in Leicestershire I had then discovered1; and in 1950 I published an extended account, with a number of additional sites, in Essays in Leicestershire History. There would have been no reason for yet further notes on the same subject had not the officers of the Ordnance Survey, in the course of revising their 25-inch maps, made detailed plans on that scale of seven sites in East Leicestershire. By the courtesy of the Ordnance Survey these plans have been made available to the Society for reproduction, and I am writing some notes about each plan without, so far as possible, repeating what I have said elsewhere on the subject.
