They are everywhere: hidden in the hills, on the plains, in the mountains, on the heaths, upriver and down river. They are not your bustling metropolises. Some of them are lucky to have a single school. They are nestled in forgotten lands. They are rarely tourist attractions. They are the villages of the world. Writing about one of them is this week’s challenge. Are you up to it?

Word count: 4,000 words or less
