By virtue of being founded on a small river island, modern Ealdwych effectively consists of three separate cities in very close proximity. You have seen the historic Old Town in the previous entry, which is flanked by Cuðbeckan to the northeast and Uestede to the southeast, across the Ærnan.

Cuðbeckan is a great place to live or work for outdoors people, with Sæwlitig Beach and the Village Greens network nearby.

Bluefin Stadium is where the Ealdwych Bluefins take on the Arthurian Baseball League.

These two meres (Four Kings Mere at the top, Erken Mere below it) form part of the extensive parkland network known as the Village Greens.

Another section of the Village Greens, Hanstede Green and Wihtwaras Pool.

Uestede lies across the River Ærnan from Old Town and Cuðbeckan.

Highway 2, the South Coast Highway, runs through Uestede.

The Ealdwych Commodores (ice hockey) and Ealdwych Reds (basketball) make their home at the Cyneburh Centre, while the Ealdwych Clippers maintain a healthy rivalry with the Bluefins from Lammermuir Field.

Great showcase! Looks like a quiet and bustling metropolis. Btw, did you write on gaelic or in another language? (It's just seem similar to this family :) )

This has a very different feel to the other cities in your region - very nice work displaying the varied aspects of it.

Thank you all :)

[b]grstudios:[/b] Its an adaptation of Old English, which seems to be more related to German the modern English, so that might be it.
[b]Benedict:[/b] Ealdwych is probably in the best part of the country, weather-wise. Not too many other places you'd have much use for a beach!
[b]hammysonata:[/b] It's just that the baseball stadia happen to be downtown. Last update showed a football stadium, and there are other sports facilities further out in the 'burbs. The whole country is pretty much mad on sports.
