Sunday Trip: Charn


From: CS Lewis' The Magician's Nephew (The Chronicles of Narnia)

The quote: The stone of which everything was built seemed to be red, but that might only be because of the curious light. It was obviously very old. Many of the flat stones that paved the courtyard had cracks across them. None of them fitted closely together and the sharp corners were all worn off. One of the arched doorways was half filled with rubble. The two children kept on turning round and round to look at the different sides of the courtyard. One reason was that they were afraid of somebody -- or something -- looking out of those windows at them when their backs were turned.

Where have we already seen a place like that? Here and here and here.
