Deadfall Abbey is a building whose supposed curse may have impacted Edna Clusterdug upon marriage to Alastair Waycress - according to the Man within Charnel House (The Pedant and the Shuffly, 35). It is said to have "disintegrating battlements."

InspirationEdit

A deadfall is a heavy rock or log that is tilted at an angle and held up with sections of branches, with one of them serving as a trigger. When the animal moves the trigger, which may have bait on or near it, the rock or log falls, crushing the animal[1].

Bellairs seemingly needed a sinister-sounding name for this fictional place, selecting it for its use of "dead".
