Foundry is situated somewhere around the middle of England, in a small, attractive village called East Stoke. East Stoke is on the old Fosse Way, which runs parallel with the new A46. It is a few miles south of Newark upon Trent (home of Newark Castle and birth place of Citadel Miniatures). When you travel through East Stoke, you will see a rundown old restaurant in the middle of the village, opposite the old restaurant is School Lane. Turn into School Lane. You will drive past a few houses at first,  then there will be fields on both sides of you.

You are passing the battlefield of East Stoke on your left (last battle of the War of the Roses, bloodiest battle in British history (we host tours of the battlefield which are organised by Julian Humphries the military historian: we also provide the food here at Stoke Hall) there is a good book by Michael Bennett called 'Lambert Simnel and the Battle of Stoke'.
 
At the time of the battle, Stoke Hall was a leper colony. We have a statue of St 'Leprosy' Leonard embedded in one of our walls.

It won't be long before you reach the main gates of Stoke Hall situated on your right. Drive past the gates: you are headed further up the road. Next, you will pass under our bridge.

Drive past these gates Go under the crumbly bridge
 

Go under the bridge and close by you will see another set of gates on your right: these are also labelled as Stoke Hall, this time you turn right and drive through the gates, along a muddy drive, go past the Church towards the big blue gates and park up. It looks like La Haye Saint doesn't it. Ours was built in 1812: I don't know about La Haye Saint.
 
You have arrived.

Three hundred Irish warriors are supposed to have been hung alongside the church after the battle. Naked Irishmen are supposed to haunt our property, but no one that we know has run into into them as yet.
