Subject Gawain ephemera around Leek.

But have you seen the Green Man in amongst the plundered stonework half way up a barn at Abbey Farm? And have you ever wondered where Bertilak's castle is? Perhaps it was Hen Cloud.......read Gawain's final journey to the Green Chapel. And did you know there once was an ironworks at Back Dane just by the lawn on the curve of the river. And if you dig around you might, just might find a piece of slag from the casting (I did). And wouldn't that make sense of the sound Gawain heard of the whetting of the Green Knight's axe. And isn't it just the best poem ever????
