According to the editors, many of whose remarks seem based on Thomas Hardy's Wessex (1913) by Herbert Lea," Anglebury, where the action in the story commences, is approximately Wareham, and here we are introduced to that "old and well-appointed Inn" the "Red Lion," a building of imposing appearance standing at the cross-roads in the centre of town."
