On Wenlock Edge

Publication Date: May 20, 2016

Chapter: The Twentieth Century

According to Wikipedia, "Wenlock Edge is a limestone escarpment near Much Wenlock, Shropshire, England." According to this poem, it's also rather blustery, and has been for well over two thousand years. It will probably continue to be blustery for another two thousand years, unless we've paved over it like Courscant by then.
