It’s really weird watching fictional characters talk about and mention places that you live in/near and know well but non-local people have never heard of.
I went to university in Worcester and no-one knew where Woking was when I said I lived 10 minutes away from it. And now the world will hear of it because of BBC’s War of the Worlds! And they have just mentioned Weybridge too!

Regulbium (Kent, England).
The original Roman fort was built not long after the Roman invasion, next to the modern-day village of Reculver. It was connected to Durovernum (Canterbury) by road. A Saxon shore fort was built around 210, but by 360 the Roman military had mostly abandoned it.
The fort’s design is similar to those along Hadrian’s Wall in northern England. This is probably because the Cohors I Baetasiorum, who according to the Notatis Dignitatum were garrisoned here, were previously stationed at Maryport in Cumbria, near Hadrian’s Wall. They probably built the fort of Regulbium as well. Tiles stamped “CIB” have been found at the site.
