Location: Dorset, United Kingdom Size: 4,000 square feet Years lived in: 5 years Driving into the pretty Dorset village of Frampton, I feel as if I have unwittingly gate crashed the set of a Richard Curtis movie.

It comes as no surprise that the three headed hound belongs to Rubeus Hagrid who is renowned as having a penchant for collecting dangerous beasties. When being verbally grilled by the three young wizards, Hagrid boasts about how he acquired the guard-dog from a “Greek chappie” he met in the pub. It then becomes clear that Fluffy is intended to be Cerberus of Greek Mythology – the three headed dog which guards the gates of the Underworld. (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone)

The Mitre Tavern, between Hatton Garden and Ely Place. It bears a stone mitre carved on the front with the date 1546. Ely Place still has its own Watchman who closes the gates a ten o’clock and cries the hours through the night.

FURRY DANCE | Angel Hotel, Helston, Cornwall: Named after the Archangel Michael. 'One night the Devil was flying across the sky, carrying a large stone to block the gate of hell. St Michael saw him and they had a great battle. The Devil dropped the stone and where it fell became known as Hell’s Stone or Helston. The stone is said to have been built into the wall of the hotel. To celebrate St Michael’s victory, people danced through the streets and started the custom of the Furry Dance.' ✫ღ⊰n

It was a lovely walk that led me through this secret garden of allotments, surrounded by an old stone wall, many plots not being cultivated so it was full of wild flowers, fruit trees plump with ripe fruit, blackberries, raspberries and vegetables, then went through a lovely old gate for a refreshing drink in a lovely pub, this 'secret garden' is so peaceful, wild and beautiful
