The name of the abyss has its origin from a legend:
In the village of Vilemovice once lived a widower with his son. He married a second time and his little son got a stepmother.
In time, the woman gave birth to her own child and wanted to get rid of the stepson. She asked him to join her in collecting the fruits of the forest. As they came close to the very edge of the abyss, the woman threw her stepson down into the depth.
However, the boy was spared from death by being caught on extending tree branches. Woodcutters, working nearby, heard the desperate cries, and saved the boy. Upon hearing the tales of the woodcutters, the village people of Vilemovice threw the stepmother over the abyss.
Since that day the abyss has been called Macocha, the Czech word for stepmother.

Local 17th century legend.

My uncle is a shopkeeper. He has a shop in an old village by the river Thames near Oxford. The shop sells a lot of things - bread, milk, fruit, vegetables, newspapers - almost everything! It is also the village post office. The children in the village always stop to spend a few pence on sweets or ice cream on their way home from school.
My uncle doesn't often leave the village. He hasn't got a car, so once a month he goes by bus to Oxford and has lunch at the Grand Hotel with some friends. He is one of the happiest men I know.
