Should be BARN not Burn

Burn doesn't fit into that part of Brythan it belongs far up North and refers to a body of water.

So from now on I'll be spelling it as Brocks Barn which needs no explanation but if it did I'd invent a mini tale about either:-

A. How a chap called Brock built a splendid barn that garnered local praise and attention OR how said edifice was involved in a famous battle when the locals held out against invaders doing the usual pillaging number

B. How a badger took up residence in said barn and became something of a local celebrity (I rather like this version!)

          Jolly good idea that about the Battle of Brocks Barn. Got Herts/Essex/Suffolk country lore written all over it.

      Good bit, that.

        Yes, I like that. Should probably go near the start of the story. Hmmmm. Maybe even be the start.

          Remember these two pieces are NOT the story but more of an outline that I know will need more careful writing. However I agree that the second part should have some of the first part integrated into... more
