aerial photograph of Croom medieval cultivation terraces at Croome near Sledmere Yorkshire England UK. Associated with the adjacent disappeared medieval village of Croom, these medieval cultivation terraces are remarkably well preserved and show clearly from the air. They are a protected scheduled ancient monument under the protection of Historic England. Tax shows the village was prosperous in 1297 but the village was so badly hit by the black death in 1349 and was receiving tax releif in 1354. The last record of the village was in 1585.
