Guiding Star
Part of Athy Road
Type Wayhouse
Appearances Factotum

The Guiding Star is the only wayhouse on the Athy Road between the Page and Brandenbrass and a mile away from Wood Hole. It is partially dug into the hills to its rear and is located next to a weir. The wayhouse is surrounded by a high stone wall with a great-lamp above the gate but no sign as the lamp serves this purpose. Europe is familiar with the Guiding Star and it is implied that she has stayed here before.[1]
