An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Lord Furnival actually has two homes. The manor home is in Stromford, a small village in the country where the family would come to escape the summer heat and the plague. In Great Wexly is his main home. It is located on the square next to the cathedral. The home is several stories high with a balcony and is squarish-looking. A narrow alley runs down one side, narrow enough that only a thin boy can scale the walls of stone. In the basement area is a dungeon and torture room. The great hall is extremely large and could hold the population of Stromford. There was a chapel next to the great hall that also held weapons. The top floor was mostly rooms for sleeping. Guards kept the wrong people from entering the front door.
