Stoughton (formely known as Brindol)

One of the largest settlements in the Vale, Stoughton is a prosperous farming community and caravan stopover located along the Dawn Way on the south bank of the Elsir River. Orchards of apple and pear trees follow the river's winding shores, while broad grain fields and farmlands surround the town for miles in all directions.
