One such witch was Meg Skelton, who was John Gregory's past romance interest.
History and heritage
Before the events of the third Spook's book, the Spook stayed at his winter house with his father.
One winter, the Spook's apprentice, Tom Ward, joined him on his trip there during winter and protected the land once and for all from Golgoth, the Lord of Winter. The location is set in the County, and is close to the town of Adlington.
This list is incomplete, so do help us to extend, and complete it:
- Meg Skelton
- John Gregory
- Tom Ward
- Golgoth (briefly)
- The location is only featured in the third book (The Spook's Secret), but is mentioned a few times throughout the series.
- The Spook and Tom almost go there in the first book, but go to the Spook's Chipenden House, instead.
