Anghireston, in full the Barony of Anghireston and Gaze Isle is one of the 50 baronies of Winn, located on the Island of Carann, in the Carann national region, on the northern end. The capital is Goalsfort, which is barely smaller than the largest city in the barony, Ten Oaks. The barony borders with Yearswall in the south, Southtale in the southeast, Islemund in the northeast (Grimmstan), and is connected by the Pontstone Highway Bridge to Oldcross in the north.

Geography

Anghireston is a largely urban barony with many urban centres throughout. A majority of population is located around the Göhe river, which flows through the southern end of the barony. Places such as Goalsfort, Göham and Temple are found near this river. Additionally, the northern coastline of the barony also has a number of large urban areas, such as Kanntster, Day Lingstone, Poard Bayand Tomming. Between these two large urban ribbons lies a largely open area, through which the N-06 highway goes. Ten Oaks lies carefully positioned near the Göhe river and this highway. The southeastern end of the barony is notable for containing the Taler Hills, in the otherwise overwhelmingly flat barony. The isle of Gaze is also a part of the barony, and is a mostly flat and urban isle.

History

The barony of Anghireston has Gaermic origins, which can be represented in the name of the river Göhe, or the names of several towns and villages in the barony. Towards the end of the colonization, it was passed to a Franquese owner, which is where names of towns such as Letté and Bargeau come from. The barony of Anghireston was admitted to Winn in 1658, and existed of not much more than the area between Goalsfort and Day Lingstone. Over time, more small territories were added to this barony, including the Barony of Great Gaze in 1855, which included Letté as well, and the Barony of Tommswoal in 1869. History to be written
