I wonder what happened to them all?
Brian Walbey: I guess that is something we'll never know.

More poignant having the names of the inhabitants Brian.
Brian Walbey: I felt the same Chad, like Chris I wonder what happened to them all.
I wonder if any of them have descendants who have visited here?
Brian Walbey: I'm sure they must have done Bill, it would be part of their families history.
It almost seems haunted.
Brian Walbey: Yes it does have that feeling, I would imagine it would feel quite spooky if one was able to go there in the middle of the night.

Quite a family history!
Brian Walbey: Most of the buildings have boards outside with this sort of information on.

I love all the green, the nature has already conquered the ruins.
Brian Walbey: My second picture on Wednesday shows how nature has taken over the whole village.

It's sad to think thatches cottages will no be loving homes for families.
Brian Walbey: I guess in a few more centuries time these will have proably fallen completely to pieces by which time of course people of that time will wonder what tbis was all about. I'm firmly of the opinion that with our generation being the last one to have grown up either during or just after the end of WWII when we have gone WWI and WWII will just become part of the countries history from a very long time ago.

It's almost like a roll of honour, Brian
Brian Walbey: I guess it is in a sort of way, most of the cottages have a board outside, some with photos, about who lived in that building.
Look at the images and try to imagine how it could be in the past.
Brian Walbey: Often when we visit places like this I try to imagine how it would have been in the days gone by.
