I'm not needing 100% accuracy owing to the deliberate vagueness of anything beyond it being 100% genuine generic rural and slightly AU anyway (folklore and folkmagic being real, not that protagonists will realise this at first, and the village and area being deliberately held in a sort of pastoral-esque magical trap). I just need broadly consistent. The rest of the story can be bent to fit once I have the right year, just I need the year first.
I've searched through the history pages of several towns within the west country, and I've also tried hitting up wikipedia, as well various variations on "history of electricity in the UK/West Country" but no joy. I'd appreciate any help please. Thanks.
