Necklace Guild #5


Miss Jayne Harcourt lived at Challicott Manor, an estate of some standing. The seventeenth century Manor had been recently improved and enlarged with the addition of two major wings. The impressive front of the building surveyed its own lands, an imposing edifice complete with crenulations, spires and tall chimneys and a stunning and daring Italianate façade.
Her father, Lord Harcourt, had given over responsibility for the running of the estate to the capable Mr Greenaway or Greening, or... really, he could never be sure of the fellow’s name, but he was more than competent and did a damned fine job.
