@QueenZira:
London. "Unfordable River Town" has since been reclassified: "Unaffordable River Town".
"Swampy Hole" is not far from the truth; it's still a sith-hole.

LordJim, It was a good one, once I was able to fill in the missing info. I'm always willing to learn something new, particularly when I`m not from around thereabouts.

Byfield I thought Ireland was named after Eriu, a local tribal goddess in the native tongue. Which is what makes me question the definition of "Land to the West." But your story is good too XD

On consideration I think I will buy the UK map. At six quid it's a bargain.

You know what Ireland used to be called? Hibernia. Which means 'Wintry`. The romans went there, decided it was pooe, left and effectively called it `pooehole`. Ireland used to be named `Winter hellhole`.

The more you know.
