A Tale of Tinkers, Trolls and Troublemakers is the third instalment of the ‘Tale’ series of books. This latest story sees the three key characters from the previous books, Finn’s Tale and A Gypsy’s Tale, brought together as young men.
Finn and Ryan last met in Tyndale, north Yorkshire. A chance encounter fifteen years later triggers a chain of events that will change their lives forever. Reunited as young men, the pair set out to find the cause of the extreme weather patterns causing havoc throughout the world, and decide to contact the extra terrestrial beings living inside Mount Shallien. Their quest takes them from Tyndale to the Cumbrian countryside where they team up with Hawkeye, and encounter mystery and magic every step of the way!
The story is mostly set in and around Dufton, a small village nestled in the foothills of the Pennine way. This area has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for its stunning landscape of stone built villages, unique geology, and imprints of a mining and industrial past. Evidence of a Roman/Anglo Saxon settlement known locally as ‘Old Dufton’ can be found at the foot of Dufton Pike.
