The Fens, East Anglia

While Lyra is in the care of the Gyptians, they travel to the Fens in East Anglia, which in the world of Northern Lights appears to be the Gyptian's land.

The Fens are largely marshland, partly drained by canals which lead to the North Sea.  From there, the Gyptians have easy access to Holland; the Gyptian language is thick with Dutch words.

The Fens are the location for the "Roping" - the gathering together of all the Gyptian families to discuss matters of importance.
