I always assumed he must know the West Country a little (though Bristol
isn't quite West Country according to Devonians) because of the bit in
Prince Caspian when the trees are being given different earths to eat at
the banquet.  Nobody who hasn't been in the West Country could really
credit the colour and texture of the earth in those parts, I don't think.
