This is where Katie Barr, Emma's older sister is living, in book 1. She moves out, in a later book.
Hunky firefighter and Meg's older brother.
former stately home, and a care home in book 1. Changes are made in a later book. In book 1, Nan (Nancy) who is Katie and Emma's nan, has a studio flat in one of the wings. One wing is for residents needing care and the central section houses a couple of larger flats and all the communal areas, offices, the kitchen, etc. Donald Strong (Nan's friend) lives in one of the flats in this section.
Aaron's younger sister who works for the local paper - The Weekly Conqueror in books 1 and 2.
Aaron and Meg's parents.
This is Donald's daughter, Miserable Mary as Katie calls her - but not to her face.
common land with swings, a slide, a lake (which Katie calls a duck pond) and a large expanse of grass, with footpaths. Emma's garden and some of the other houses in Cherry Tree close, back onto the park and in the early mornings you can hear the ducks quacking on the pond.
Five of the 'usual' supermarkets (who don't need me to advertise them) plus Conqueror's Convenience Store. Just look for all the orange roofs on the map!
Owned by Mr and Mrs Williams. There's been a local store on this spot since 1066, or so it says on the sign. From the outside it looks as if it's been there since before the Elizabethan age; the first one, not the second. Inside, it's like an Aladdin's Cave and, in parts, you have to duck your head if you're more than a certain height.
Italian restaurant owned and run by Alberto and his son, Silvio. Katie and her best friend Tori worked as waitresses here before they moved to London.
The Reverend Charles Chesterfield has recently become the vicar of Holy Trinity Church. There is a large church hall next door which can be hired for meetings, talks, parties etc. This is where the local W.I. meet and also the Norman Landing Amateur Dramatics Society puts on their shows. It's also where the Conqueror's choir hold their weekly sessions.
Sitting right on the beach so close to the sea that in stormy weather metal shutters are used to stop any pebbles and the crashing waves from smashing the full length glass windows. Cars have been damaged in the car park during rough weather.
Owned by Mr and Mrs Trewberry. In books 1 and 2, Meg Holt works here and writes a column for brides, called Aisle, Altar, Hymn but her main job is as a photo-journalist.
A former sheep farm but now full of Christmas trees of various shapes and sizes. A posh, newly-built two-storey barn that looks more like someone's home than a barn, stands to the right of the Farmhouse.
This is believed to be where William The Conqueror and his merry band of Normans, landed in 1066. Sadly, the pier wasn't there in those days, or they might have taken a ride on the carousel and had an ice cream or candy floss instead of pillaging the country.
This is firefighter Aaron's fire station
This is home to Vida Fisher - a woman of a certain age, who isn't shy in giving unwanted advice, sharing her opinions, and telling people what to do... especially her nephew, Mackenzie, (Mack) who is in his thirties, and, good-naturedly, gives as good as he gets.
