It started as a worldbuilding exercise. A fictional county where I could create landscapes, stories and characters.
I imagine Farynshire to be somehow squashed between North Wales and Liverpool. I have erected a mountain range (the Daggerrock Mountains) between Farynshire and the rest of England to maintain its mystique, and to give me the freedom to develop its history however I want.
This website allows me to build and explore different aspects of my county. Inbetween the coast and the mountains there are wild forests, tumbling rivers, and cities, towns and villages rich in history, culture and legend.
Feel free to have a look around. A good place to start are the travelblogs written by Mabel Govitt. You can find the first one here.
