raynev1: Thanks and I'm glad you like the narration! I enjoy coming up with the story!
Entry 4: A tale of two farmers!
So, as you can probably guess from the title of this entry were back with the regions two most famous farmers (which is actually quite a big claim seeing as everyone in the entire region works on a farm), Farmer Poppin and Farmer Pippin. Now, last entry we looked ta how some enterprising ventures into commerce had left farmer Poppins farmers market feeling a bit sorry for itself and, predictably, Farmer Poppin wasn't best pleased with this.
Farmer Poppin however, was a pretty enterprising fellow and after a few meetings with some interested parties choose to redevlop this parcel of land.
Into this lovely commercial plot, smack bang in the middle of Harrington itself.
This had the desired effect, with the previous market stall owners, who had moved business to Roweaton seeing a fall in sales and Farmer Poppin seeing a nice amount of income from the rent and his own little convenience store. In fact, profit was so good that Farmer Poppin decided to buy himself a nice smart house on the newly settled and highly sought after Harnsea Island seen here.

Meanwhile Farmer Pippin didn't really care to much for this commerce nonsense (though he liked the money they paid him for his produce) and had instead concentrated on expanding and buying himself more farms, having pretty much given up the running of his Fair. Anyway, space was getting a bit tight around Harrington so Farmer Pippin decided to move to quieter sticks and headed northwards, up past the newly settled and rapidly growing Sedmore.
Too, where he currently resides, along with a load of his employees, in the self named Pippinsfield, east of Berrin Woods and surrounded by all his land. He was even nice enough to let his old rival Mr Poppin build one of his stores in his village!
And that, is basically the most interesting story to come out of Harrington and it's surrounds at the moment. Life is pretty peaceful and quiet though expansion keeps moving steadily on such as in the town north of Harrington (that I've forgotten the name of) where limited space caused expansion to take place on the opposite side of the river (so north-west of Harrington).
Anyway, to stop us going too far off the main focus of this entry we'll wrap it up with the first ever region view of the Harrington area.
So, not much to report but as you can see from the region view it is growing nicely outwards which is nice.
Anyway I'll see you next time with some more growth hopefully as the fledging town tries to find its way!
Till next time!
