Westward Ho! [Feb. 2nd, 2018|09:46 am]
Tony Grist
 According to the dream I had last night there's a house in central London called "Westward Ho!" where a man called Brinsley Hinkley (or something like that) raises human babies (on the principle of a fish farm) in a moat full of amniotic fluid.

I suspect you are thinking of Kingsley's Water Babies there?

Oh yes, of course, I hadn't made the connection.

And Kipling's old school (the prototype for Stalky & Company), which was called Westward Ho!

So called because it was situated in the village of Westward Ho!- a Victorian seaside resort named after Kingsley's novel. It's the only place in the UK to have an exclamation mark as part of its name.

I read Westward Ho! when I was a kid. Heavy going.
