- David Morton and the twins Dickie and Mary, with their friends Peter, Jenny, Tom and the Warrenders, go to stay in the little, forgotten town of Clun. On the hills of the wild country around them some of the oldest inhabitants of England lived and fought, and about a mile away from Clun runs a stretch of the great fortified ditch which the slaves of King Offa of Mercia built between his country and Wales.
- Hard by Offa's Dyke the Lone Piners discover a lonely mysterious house surrounded by high stone walls. It seems deserted but is in fact the seat of strange happenings which are bringing disaster to farmers in the neighbourhood. And there is the odd Mr. Cantor who is staying at the same boarding house as the children, and about whom opinion is divided - is he friend or foe?
