The Morgans are a Welsh family living in Balham, London – the only novel written by the Anglo-Welsh poet and journalist, Edward Thomas.
The Morgan family live at Abercorran House in Balham – they’re friendly, welcoming, slightly eccentric and Welsh. Arthur Froxfield becomes a frequent visitor and recounts the stories he heard there of swan maidens, the Castle of Leaves and the house of the days of the year
