SHUCKLAND       Introduction        Alphabetical List of Locations
Location: Near Rockland, NORFOLK
Encounter: "Only the other day I was told of a man driving towards Rockland with a companion, when suddenly right in their path stood a huge uncanny dog. The driver pushed on [in] spite of his companion's warning. Dutch courage prevailed, but as the cart touched the Thing the air was alive with waving flame, and a hideous sulphurous stench loaded the atmosphere. Within a short time the overbold farmer died, and Shuck has not since been seen in those parts."
