I have just found a very atmospheric picture of Allerton Park, the house I am using as a model for Whitemoor Hall, the country house where most of the action in The Book of Thoth is set. I have been staring at pictures of this for hours on end for the past nine months or so and it's not over yet!
No writing today I'm afraid, but going over (and correcting) the last 30 pages I wrote before my holidays so I know where to start tomorrow morning...
Allerton Park has also been the subject for some great B&W photos by Simon Marsden.
It is while reading Mr Marsden's wonderful book "This Spectred Isle" that I found the castle and decided to make it my main setting. I have found quite a few things in there that I might use in the book... I have used Kitty's Steps in Devon, for exemple, and renamed it The Wise Man's Spring...
I think therefore I write.
