    Hola:

    This is from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling. It is a stanza from the Sorting Hat's song.

    Bold Gryffindor, from wild moor,
    Fair Ravenclaw, from glen,
    Sweet Hufflepuff, from valley broad,
    Shrewd Slytherin, from fen.


    Which region in the British Islands would each one represent?

    Thanks.

    Hullo QA. Wild moor = generally southwest and northern England.
    Glen = Scotland.
    Valley broad = more or less anywhere.
    Fen = East Anglia.
