Sir Terry Pratchett unveils Discworld-inspired road names in Wincanton

Sir Terry Pratchett, I don't know what I'll do with myself when you stop writing books. I really don't.

TP and fans dressed in Discworld costumes in the Kingwell Rise housing development in Wincanton, Somerset. Streets in the development have been named after streets in Ankh-Morpork. Wincanton is twinned with Ankh-Morpork, becoming the first town to be twinned with a fictional place.

The Old Inn, Holton, near Wincanton. Unpretentious good food at a decent price. Lovely old building in idyllic village. And close enough to the allotment to get quite a bit of business from us I suspect!
