Crowthorne (!)

Crowthorne is the name of a village and civil parish in Berkshire. I have never been there, however my wife and I drove through it a couple of times. The name struck me and I have developed a sort of obsession about the village. I never stopped in Crowthorne, but I want to go there one day, if only for one afternoon. The name mixes two things with sinister overtone: a crow and a thorn. It is the name of a place that belongs to a horror story, or a village in a Dungeons & Dragons setting. reading through its Wikipedia entry, the village seems to have little history. All the same, it deserves one, if imaginary. So I am very tempted to stop in Crowthorne to have a proper feel of the place and its atmosphere.
