"The Lost Village of Greasley"
Could Greasley be the site of a medieval village?

Greasley Castle was a tremendous example of a fortified medieval home, and many of these castles attracted communities around their walls to benefit from the security they offered.

As a significant castle, did the walls of Greasley Castle attract any such hamlet itself?

Well, a local team spent several months investigating the legend of 'the lost village of Greasley Castle' themselves and have now reported their amazing findings in 'The Lost Village of Greasley Project', which is now available for download, so you may judge for yourself!
