Fauxlafel Family


Meet the Fauxlafels

It was the turn of the last Century when the intrepid explorer Horation Postlethwaite returned to the Kingdom of Bury St Edmunds having travelled the Silk Road from its source. He returned with a pair of curious creatures the like of which had not been seen upon our shores. He named the species ‘Fauxlafel’.

On reaching his estate, Postlethwaite proudly introduced his Farm Manager to these remarkable animals. Once old Farmer Kesey had recovered his equilibrium, the wise old bird could clearly see what a whole herd of them could mean for the Kingdom and lost no time in putting his freshly hatched plan into action.

Now, under the ministrations and tutelage of the Farm Manager’s Grandson, Ol’ Ken, the lands around Ravenwood Towers are alive with the sounds of snuffling, humming and “wheeee” as these wondrous, gentle animals enjoy their favourite pursuits.

Yes the full history of the Fauxlafel is shrouded in mystery. Many Men of Darwinian Science have tried and failed to trace the origin of their species. All that is certain is that somewhere in the mysterious East there is a hidden place where a herd of Fauxlafel roam in splenge isolation. Maybe they even pass down a tale of the Adventurous Pair who left their enchanted enclave to explore what lays beyond with a strange creature sporting remarkable plumage.
