"Hell bent for leather!"
Welcome to HOUGHTON-MANOR!
This is the original manor house for the Houghton clan in England. It is located between Preston and Lancaster in Lancashire which is situated in the north west of England near the Scottish border. It is known in England as Houghton (or Hogton) Tower. This is the banquet hall where King James I dubbed a particularly tasty cut of cow, the "Sir Loin" of beef.

A poet from Blackpool, Jim Bennet, disagrees with me as to the definition of "near". He says there are two counties between Houghton Tower and the Scottish border. Given the difference between the interstates here and UK driving, he's probably right. He is doing research on the possibility William Shakespeare was a resident at Houghton Tower in the care of my great grandfather, Thomas Houghton.
