Thornton Abbey

Today’s early spring sunshine happened to coincide with a low breeze – unusual for this stretch of North Sea coast at this time of year. I therefore hauled the dust sheet from my cycle, pumped-up my tyres and took to the open road.

As is often the case, my ride took me past nearby Thornton Abbey, scene of the gruesome medieval mystery detailed in my feature article ‘The Silent Stones of Thornton Abbey.’

The impressive twelfth-century relic also happens to be the inspiration for my children’s story ‘The Door to Caellfyon.’

The fantasy, in the tradition of C.S. Lewis’s ‘Narnia’, was written for the nine to eleven year age group, but is suitable for those from nine years to ninety-nine.

I will shortly be serialising the novel on this site.
