The North and the location of Hornwood[1]

Hornwood is a castle in the North and the seat of House Hornwood. The castle is located along the northwestern edge of the Sheepshead Hills,[1] which are within the dominion of House Manderly,[2] and the Hornwood lands neighbor those of House Bolton to the north.[3] Its ruler is known as the Lord of the Hornwood;[4] there is presumably a forest called the Hornwood which is ruled by the castle.
