The ‘distinctly unmagical’ town of Cokeworth:
Cokeworth is a town in England where Spinner’s End is located. […] Cokeworth has a river running through it, evidence of at least one large factory in the long chimney overlooking Snape’s house, and many small streets full of worker’s houses.
Home to Lily, Petunia and Snape during their childhood’s, this industrial town suggests normalcy and the ordinary. Nonetheless, Spinner’s End was the place which facilitated Lily and Snapes’ magical development and made them the talented young wizard and witch they each grew up to be (even if they took very different paths in later years).
