I'm using a small village in England as the base for my story. I've never been to this place so everything I know about it is via the internet (which is actually quite a lot). My question is, should I keep it real as much as possible, i.e. if the characters visit a shop/pub, walk down a street etc, should I use the real names - or do you think its acceptable to make them up. Certain places will definitely be made up (house names mostly i.e. [ ] manor or [ ] cottage), so should I perhaps create my own village? I would prefer to keep with the actual village, it feels right to me and it already has a similar kind of history that will be portrayed in my story. What do you think?
