In 1915, the general assembly appointed the Providence Water Supply Board to condemn 14,800 acres of land in rural Scituate. The hardworking people of the five villages were devastated. By December 1916, notices were delivered to the villagers stating that the homes and land they had owned for generations were to be taken and destroyed. Construction was well under way by 1921, and water was being stored by November 10, 1925. On September 30, 1926, the treatment plant began operation. It now serves more than 60 percent of Rhode Islanders. The $21 million project was the largest ever undertaken in the state at the time. The dam that annihilated the villages is 3,200 feet long and 100 feet high and holds back more than 40 billion gallons of water. Today these quiet villages lie up to 87 feet beneath the cold, dark waters of the Scituate Reservoir.

The idea of the village - unspoilt, unpretentious, unchanging and growing almost organically out of the landscape - is one of the most potent in the English imagination. Writers, artists and ordinary people have waxed lyrical on the theme for centuries, while today millions have left the cities in search of the rural idyll. Yet the village is plainly dying. The unchanging rhythms of village life, as experienced with little variations by generations, have vanished. But not without trace ... they exist in living memory. In the voices of men and women for whom the old ways were life-shaping realities. Richard Askwith, an award-winning writer and journalist, describes a journey in search of the quintessential English village, through dales and suburbs, down ancient lanes and estates. He captures the voices of poachers and gamekeepers, farmers and hunters, nurses and postmen, teachers and craftsmen, and demonstrates that, while the landscape more changed than we thought, the past is never so simple as we imagine.

Home to a community of hardworking farmers and mill workers, the village of Delta stood along the banks of the Mohawk River until it was evacuated by the state to raise the water in the Erie Canal. Before the flooding of the river, Delta was a small country village with the same postmaster for over 30 years and families farming the same land for generations. In order to raise the water, the state approved the construction of five reservoirs across New York. The town was evacuated soon after, and the land that generations of residents toiled over now sits at the bottom of Lake Delta.

Across the length and breadth of Britain there are more than 3,000 lost villages: once-thriving communities that fell victim to the pressures of disease, industry, social and political change. Now reduced to ivy-clad remnants or weather-worn ruins, all are echoes of a former age and evoke in us a natural curiosity as to who lived in them, what life was like there, what caused their decline. In this beguiling book bestselling author Henry Buckton goes in search of some of the more recent lost villages from around Britain. They include Hallsands in Devon, swept away in a violent storm; the island communities of Vatersay and Mingulay, in Scotland, victims to the changing fortunes of the local laird; Stocks in Bowland and Greenbooth in Lancashire, whose watery fate was sealed by the growing demands of England’s west coast towns; and the picture-perfect villages of Imber in Wiltshire and Tyneham in Dorset, requisitioned to help safeguard the nation but never given back. Combining rare photographs, personal research and the memories of those who knew the villages, the author provides a timely and at times moving record of communities whose stories would otherwise soon be lost for ever.
