The novel The Dark Is Rising features Will Stanton, age 11, who learns on that birthday that he is an "Old One" and thus destined to wield the powers of The Light in the ancient struggle with The Dark. In the U. S. it was a Newbery Honor Book. Its 2007 film adaptation, titled The Seeker in America and The Dark Is Rising in Britain, made significant plot and character divergences from the book. Simon and Barney Drew: The main characters of the first novel, the Drew siblings, are human children who have known Merriman Lyon as their "Great Uncle Merry" for years. While on holiday in Cornwall, they get caught up in the battle between the Light and the Dark and join the search for the Things of Power. In the first novel, Over Sea, Under Stone, they search for the legendary Grail of King Arthur, they appear in the third book and the last book in the series, Silver on the Tree. In the poem featured prominently throughout The Dark Is Rising, they are the ones referred to as "three from the track".
Their last name is linked with Will Stanton's in British paleohistory. Simon Drew: Simon is the eldest of the Drews.

In Greenwitch, he is jealous of Will because Merriman brought him to Cornwall for "unnecessary" reasons, but warms up to him, he loves anything to do with ships. Jane Drew: Jane is the middle Drew. In Greenwitch, Jane is allowed to attend the Greenwitch ceremony, traditionally for female locals only, through her compassion develops a special bond with the entity which constitutes the magical aspect of the Greenwitch, she subsequently receives from the entity the case containing the coded manuscript for deciphering the runes on the Grail. She develops a special bond with the Lady of the Light in Silver on the Tree. Barnabas Drew: Barney is the youngest of the Drews, he loves King Arthur legends and, although he is quite wary of his talent at paints. In Greenwitch, Barney sketches a picture of the bay, stolen by an agent of the Dark, but Merriman recovers it and presents it to Tethys as a gift.
Old Ones: Ancient and immortal, the Old Ones are mystical beings who possess great magical power. They are of many races and cultures. Capable of performing many impossible feats, including freezing time and controlling the elements, they serve the Light in the war against the Dark; the Great Lords of the Dark are not Old Ones. The two factions struggle to determine the destiny of mankind. Will Stanton: The main character of the second novel, a major character in the entire series, he is the seventh son of a seventh son, in a large, close human family, his eleventh birthday marks the beginning of his magical awakening and rise to power as the last of the Old Ones. The Dark Is Rising tells how he came to power, met Merriman Lyon, accumulated the six "signs" to help fight the Dark. Will is the last of the Old Ones. In Greenwitch, he is invited to come to Cornwall by Merriman in order to help recover the Grail and cypher that reveals how to read the runes on the Grail, he gives Jane a bracelet of gold engraved with the words, "power from the Greenwitch", which she throws into the sea as an offering to the Greenwitch in appreciation for its help.

Greenwich, New South Wales
Greenwich is a suburb on the Lower North Shore of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Greenwich is located 7 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Municipality of Lane Cove; the suburb occupies a peninsula on the northern side of Sydney Harbour, at the opening of the Lane Cove River. The suburb features harbour views, a few pockets of bushland, restaurants, cafes and a harbour swimming pool with shark net; the suburb's name is derived from its namesake Greenwich, by the banks of the River Thames in London. Parramatta River had been known as the'Thames of the Antipodes' and other nearby suburbs were named after Thames localities of Putney and Henley; the Cammeraygal clan of the Kuringgai people were the first inhabitants of the Greenwich area, lived along the foreshores of the harbour, hunting in the hinterland and trading with other clans. The first known occasion when a European went to the area was in 1788, when Lieutenant Henry Ball passed through the area while returning from a trip to the Middle Harbour area.
Land grants began in 1794 and industries developed in the area during the 1830s. Aboriginal people were still present in the 1820s, but disease and displacement had driven them out by the 1860s. Early land grants were made to Samuel Lightfoot, a convict, in 1794, William Gore, public servant, in 1813. Gore built a road from his farm at Artarmon to Gore Cove, the beginning of Greenwich Road. In the 1830s George Green and his father Amaziah bought land in Greenwich, with access to the harbour, along with others began a shipbuilding industry on the foreshore; when Green subdivided his land in 1840, the name'Greenwich' was mentioned for the first time. Greenwich House—a two-storey Georgian home made from sandstone blocks—was built on the 20-acre estate of George Green in 1836 and still stands on the corner of George and St Lawrence Streets; the house was sold, by the mortgage holders, to Gother Kerr Mann in the early 1850s, remained in that family until 1949. The eastern tip of Greenwich is called Manns Point, after Gother Kerr Mann.
Mann was the first Chief Commissioner for Railways, the Superintendent of convicts at Cockatoo Island and the builder of Fitzroy Dock. By the early 1880s Greenwich Point had a post office, general store, school, with around 16 houses. Upper Greenwich took longer to develop, with most of the area still virgin bush, but with the improvement in north shore roads, increasing subdivision in upper Greenwich, some grander houses were built near River Road, new estates were subdivided as Greenwich became a commuter suburb. Between the 1880s and the 1940s a number of successful dairies operated in Greenwich, run by the Anderson, Hogan and Clarke families; the milk from Anderson's was delivered by boat along the Lane Cove River and to the residents of Cockatoo Island. Hogan's dairy at Chisholm Street had 300 cows by the time it closed in 1928. Clarke's dairy was on the site of the current golf course. Light industry was set up along the foreshores of Greenwich, including Shipbuilding, brickmaking and the Patent Asphaltum Company which refined bitumen and manufactured building materials.
The Shell Transport and Trading Company opened a terminal at Gore Bay in 1901, importing and distributing petroleum products. It grew over time to include the sites of the Patent Asphaltum works, several wharves, as well as the shale oil refining works of John Fell & Co. By the late 1930s, over 500 workers were employed at the Shell site. Today fuel products unloaded at Gore Bay are transferred by an underground pipe to the Clyde Refinery. Greenwich was the northern portal of the first tunnel under Sydney Harbour; the tunnel was dug by the New South Wales Government Railways to Birchgrove to provide a reliable way to get electricity from the Pyrmont Power Station to the tram network on the north shore. Cables had been laid on the floor of the harbour, but damaged by ships dragging their anchors; the tunnel was commenced in 1913 and excavated by hand, completed in 1924. Part of the tunnel is through the silt at the bottom of the river, so required constant pumping until it was allowed to flood in 1930 and abandoned from 1969.
The tunnel was excavated entirely from the Greenwich side, as the residents on Long Nose Point at Balmain objected to the noise of the compressor powering pneumatic drills. There were both the tunnel portal and a vertical shaft nearer the water used for excavation; the tunnel passes between the floor of the harbour and the Balmain coal mine further below the harbour. The tunnel is excavated through Hawkesbury sandstone which lies below the silt and sediment which form the floor of the harbour. At its lowest point, it is 236 feet below sea level. Greenwich has a number of heritage-listed sites, including: 95 River Road: Pallister, Greenwich Sydney Harbour railway electricity tunnel Greenwich Public School is a local primary school with two separate campuses located 1.5 kilometres apart. It was opened in 1876 as a provisional school, after repeated petitions from residents, became a public school in 1880, with a new building and site in Mitchell Street in 1881. In 1909 the school moved to the site of the current infants school in Greenwich Road, the primary school moved to Kingslangley Road in 1950.
The children of former Prime Minister John Howard, attended the school. Greenwich Point ferry wharf on the Parramatta River is served by Sydney Ferries Cockatoo Island ferry services between Circular Quay and Cockatoo Island. A second wharf on the Lane Cove River is served by peak-hour Captain Cook Cruises services. State Transit bus route 265 from Greenwich Point runs to McMahons Point an
Greenwich was a town in Hampshire County, Massachusetts. The town was lost as a result of the formation of the Quabbin Reservoir in order to supply Boston's growing water needs. Greenwich was established in 1739 as Quabbin, incorporated as Quabbin Parish in 1754, became the town of Greenwich in 1754, it was located along the Middle branches of the Swift River. The Athol Branch of the Boston and Albany Railroad ran through the center of town, as did Route 21, it was well known for its ponds, which were popular vacation spots. It bordered four towns—Enfield, Prescott and Hardwick. Greenwich was disincorporated on April 1938, as part of the creation of the Quabbin Reservoir. Upon disincorporation, portions of the town were annexed to the adjacent towns of Hardwick, New Salem and Ware; because most of Greenwich was at lower elevation than the surrounding towns, it is now submerged, except for the hilltops of Curtis Hill, Mount Lizzie and Mount Pomeroy, which are now islands.
