Where Is Shadowvale?

I was wondering last night if we would be able to pinpoint a rough location of Shadowvale on a map of England, and set about reading notes I'd collected from the game.

Thing is, everything seems to contradict everything else.

The two most important facts, in my opinion, are the geography of the place, and the ending text.

Right at the end of the game, we are told that Hadrian's Wall is built not far north of Shadowvale, which means that SV is up in the far north of England. That's okay, but the geography of Shadowvale doesn't fit with that. Since the entire game world is surrounded by mountains, I'd place it either in Wales, or in the Pennines. I'm going to say the Peninnes for now, since they are the most north.

However, they aren't northern enough, in my opinion, considering that Shadowvale is a small place.

So, I think if we find out what the size of SV is, from sign posts, or in-game descriptions, we might be able to get a better idea.

Anybody have any thoughts?
