Derek, they are east of Mordorrrr. No seriously they are the area on the cusp of Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire and Norfolk. A lot is reclaimed land I believe from salt marshes, with also very rich river silt. Some of the fields are so black, they are almost purple when they are first ploughed. We have lots of canal type structures, not for shipping so much as drainage with pumping stations. It is very flat with HUGE skies; I love it, as an artist it is blissful to go out and paint a skyscape.
