“Will we be there soon?”

The Land’s End kit launches today. The minstrel’s story continues with chapter 4, entitled: ‘The minstrel and the pirates’.

And this is how it all began:

Once upon a time, long, long ago, in a country as far away or as close as your imagination allows (I don’t know where you call home), there lived the heavy-drinking and rowdy knight named Cuthbert. He once owned a proud castle, but unhappily was short of money, and now it was so ramshackle and dilapidated that it brought him no joy to live there.

Cuthbert didn’t have much to his name except for a spindly horse, a puny donkey and a squire named Edwin.
