The village consists of four tumbledown one room houses surrounded by an empty sheepfold and a well. The houses are constructed of un-mortared stone, roofed with sod and empty windows.
The Heart Tree Edit
The old, enormous heart tree has pale limbs, and its face having a hole large enough to place a sheep within its mouth. The trunk is nearly eight feet wide, the branches spreading so far that the entire village is shaded beneath their canopy. Even Jon Snow admits that it's the biggest tree he has ever seen.
