Rather interesting Emsworth facts
Did you know that not only did our greatest 20th century novelist P.G. Wodehouse live on various occasions in the Hampshire town of Emsworth; but that the house on Record Road where he resided was called Threepwood? He must have loved the place to have named two of his greatest characters, Lord Emsworth and his brother the Hon. Galahad Threepwood for it. Blandings Castle itself is said to be based on Apley Hall near Bridgnorth.
