I've driven through such places, they're like ghost towns. It's quite different than a traditional 'sleepy village' with the old spinsters cycling past with rose cuttings; no, these places are just eery, usually there's the remnants of the Post Office and village shop that has closed down, the village school has been converted to housing, often the pub has gone too, and all the houses are shut up, certainly no faint smell of log fires, the only evidence of civilization are the Porsche Cayenne tyre tracks on the green.

Very strange, market economics can deliver some very odd outcomes.
