"...a lonely, winding road at twilight."
Beedle the Bard, The Tale of the Three Brothers[src]

This road was lonely and winding. It already existed in the thirteenth century. It had a river that was too treacherous to pass.[1][2]

The Tale of the Three Brothers

"There were once three brothers who were travelling along a lonely, winding road at twilight. In time, the brothers reached a river too deep to wade through and too dangerous to swim across. However, these brothers were learned in the magical arts, and so they simply waved their wands and made a bridge appear across the treacherous water. They were halfway across it when they found their path blocked by a hooded figure."
Beedle the Bard, The Tale of the Three Brothers[src]

In the history The Tale of the Three Brothers by Beedle the Bard, three brothers named Ignotus, Antioch and Cadmus Peverell travelled down at this road when they had to cross a bridge that they made. Death stood on this bridge.[1][2]
