Heahburh æt Niwan castelle. Name.

In the December 2011 Letter of Acceptances and Returns, this name was accepted. The text of this acceptance said: "Submitted as Heahburh æt Niwecastel, the submitted form uses the nominative version of the Old English locative. However, the preposition æt requires the dative form. Metron Ariston provided the grammatically correct form, Niwan castelle, based on dated forms (the 11th century Æt ælcan castelle and the 10th century Niwan tune)."

As one might suppose from this discussion, the registered form should have been the grammatically correct form æt Niwan castelle. We have made that change here.
