From the Times Online comes this story of a couple’s hope to establish a real Hogwarts:

There is no express from Platform 9¾, no owls and no Nimbus 2000, but in many other respects a tiny cottage in a forest clearing in Ireland is the real-life version of Harry Potter’s Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. From their grandly named but extremely modest Castle Pook in Co Cork, an English couple are hoping to open what is being described as Europe’s first finishing school for trainee witches and wizards.

Millions of Harry Potter fans are so fed up of waiting for Book 5 – The Order of the Phoenix – to come out in 2003, they have started writing their own stories about Harry, Hermione and Ron. (From CBBC Newsround.)
