DMVs (Deserted Medieval Villages)

From Wikipedia's list of lost settlements in Nottinghamshire:

A goldmine for the right kind of novelist... (I, of course, am no kind of novelist.) Re place names, cf. also this old post on the extraordinary ugliness of Illinois place names.

Addendum Should really go through the rest of the list at some point. Some other names: Barford, Badsaddle, Newbottle in Harrington, Barpham, Erringham.
