Word: swamp
pLACE-NAME: The Flash, a field in Wrockwardine

Believe it or not, ‘Flash’ was a medieval word for a swamp! We can imagine what a very boggy, sticky place it once was!

Helpful story hints: How big was the swamp? What sort of creatures lived there? Did any people live nearby? What kind of plants grew there? Was it a place that people visited or avoided? Was it a bright place, or a bit murky?
