Travel Guide

Rachel Hore mentions that the inspiration for Starbrough Hall is the Georgian town of Holt

“Unfolding (the map) she found Starbrough village, but Starbrough Hall wasn’t even labelled, and the although the markings indicated forest, there was no sign of any building that might be the folly. “

“The woodland was so thick with ivy and brambles, it would be foolhardy to try to force another way through”
The inspiration for Anthony Whickam was William Herschel  who was a stargazer in 18th Century and who discovered the planet Uranus. The Greenwich Observatory is the best place to experience this world!

What about the Lindow man?

The Lindow man and Boxgrove man are mentioned which were real life discoveries. In Norse mythology, Yggdrasil is the world tree
