This field is the site of a medieval village that had the name Wothersome. From my brief research, the village may have had as few as 20 residents. There seems to be no evidence of its former existence – maybe some crop marks show themselves at the right time of year.
A second field, less than a mile from the first, is the site of a more modern village, one that lasted a mere three or four days, yet probably had a few thousand ‘residents’. It is the site of a ‘tent village’ that came into existence during the ‘Leeds Festival’ at Bramham Park, West Yorkshire. Now an annual event, it is likely a new village will appear at the same time next year.
