Quite clearly not "Bigger Trees near Warter", but "Fewer Trees near ???"...!

Nice! Thanks!

We Early Musickers have a concert usually every May in St James' Church, Warter, and, from Beverley via Pocklington, Warter is "on the way". We have been to the precise location where Hockney made the sketches for his monumental painting.

How old is Wharram Percy? Might it have existed prior to 1000 AD?

The name rings a bell for me. In reading my family surname's history in the works of an English genealogist, I think that the name was recorded there in the century before the turn of the first millennium. Having only a very minor acquaintance with British history, wouldn't that era have been when the Danes were raiding that coast?

Oh the stories they can tell.

Reminds me of this YT video I saw a while back.

from the Wikipedia article that I linked to:
History
Although the site seems to have been settled since prehistory, the village appears to have been most active from the 10th to the 12th centuries. The Domesday Book of 1086 records it as 'Warran' or 'Warron'. The suffix 'Percy' stems from the prominent, aristocratic family that owned the area during the Middle Ages.
