As Miss Gwen zigzags her way through England in pursuit of those disappearing schoolgirls, it looks like she might wind up breaking for a night at the ancestral country estate of the Viscounts Loring (aka, the Dorringtons).
Most of the other great houses in the Pink books have a name. We know that Turnip lives hard by the village of Parva Magna, that the Dovedales preside from Dovedale in Norfolk, that the Pinchingdales are based at Sibley Court in Gloucestershire, and the Uppingtons, with the naming ingenuity for which they are known (Bunny-the-bunny, anyone?) have their principal seat at Uppington Hall in Kent.
We’ve seen Loring House, Miles’s familial town residence, but not the Dorrington country seat.
Help! What do you think would be a good name for Miles’s ancestral country house? (And just so you know, I’m ruling out Biscuit Manor. Just sayin’.)
As always, once we have a critical number of suggestions, I’ll open this to vote. I also have some “Ashford Affair” calendar magnets to give away to anyone who contributes an idea….
