The village is wonderfully preserved and you can wander the streets and imagine a family coming home 1,000 years ago to exactly what you are seeing.

The pillory in the town center was one of the best preserved we saw on our trip. But then again it is only from the 17th century, a mere "child" when you consider the age of the original village.
