The Village of Daresbury

Daresbury is a small "classical" English village located about thirty kilometers (twenty miles) south west of Manchester. It's quite a pretty place which just happens to be the birth place of Lewis Carroll, author of the children's classics Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
