Goatswood is set sometime in the later part of the 1800’s. It is a Victorian village in rural England, somewhere in the Midlands in the UK.

Houndstead Abbey is located not far from Goatswood in the Wyvern valley. Its is a place of magic and fairy tales.

Shout out for Superb Steam and Waterfall Effects

The water movement and reflection effects are excellent… but you need to visit and see them in person to appreciate the quality. They seem to be based on the “Skye River Set” by Alex Bader.

The modelling and lighting is in the style of previous builds by Hera of Whitechapel and Whitby…

Inara Pey did a blog post in April 2022 about a previous version of the Goatswood build [link to post] along with some pointers to the sources and origins of the theme and buildings. More detail is also available in Notecards available at the entry station. On 25-Aug-2023 she did an updated blog post about the new build.
