In a Daily Prophet story about out-of-control Hallowe’en celebrations, a Maidenhead barbecue is mentioned as an example of a wizarding party gone awry, as there were several loud explosions and a vampire came, “showed an alarming interest in the neighboring Muggles’ daughter, and was only persuaded back over the fence by the offer of a raw steak” (DP). Maidenhead is an English town on the river Thames, located almost due west of London.
