Gaunt (A fictional village in England)

Shropshire is on the map as the author is based here.
Gaunt by name and gaunt by nature. You’ll be pleased to know that this godforsaken place isn’t real. Just as well really:

“A canopy of trees lined the road into the town of Gaunt, dappling the tarmac with sunlight where it breaks through the leaves, making me squint. It feels as though we’re driving through a tunnel of beauty to the last destination we will ever reach. The end of the road”

“Gaunt stretches out ahead of us as bleak and uninviting as its name suggests, hollowed out and emaciated. the place brings to mind a hall of mirrors, every angle skewed and off centre so that it doesn’t matter which perspective you look at it from, something always feels wrong. Gray-fronted houses sit abandoned and desolate. Population : dwindling.”
