Monk Gretton is the village where Jonathan Strange first meets Vinculus and is told of his destiny as a magician. The village lies somewhere on the road between Strange's home, Ashfair in Shropshire, and the Gloucestershire rectory where his intended bride Arabella Woodhope is residing. Monk Gretton has an ancient church, some twenty or so cottages and a pretty toll-house in the modern Gothick style. A stream runs through it[22].
