It is located south of London, where most of the battle between Jonathan Joestar and Dio Brando's zombies takes place. The final battle between Dio and Jonathan occurs in the castle on a hill nearby. The town had 452 citizens, but after Dio's sudden takeover, 73 of them were transformed into zombies. The challenge of the 77 Rings was held here during the Middle Ages for training knights.
Windknight's Lot is surrounded on three sides by inaccessible mountains. The last side has a cliff that drops into the sea.
The town was built in the middle ages as a practice ground for the royal knights. Coal is excavated via an extensive railway system dug by prisoners. The residents of this place are normal people who live by fishing and agriculture.
Dio had moved into the empty castle by the graveyard, up on one of the hills east of town, while recovering from his first battle with Jonathan. Since then, he has been sucking the blood out of the town's citizens and turning them into Zombies.
The only way into the town is on a single wagon road that goes through a tunnel in one of the mountains. The tunnel is approximately 300 meters long, and has a single rusty sword stuck into the inner wall. The sword is actually a disguised lever that, when pulled, reveals a secret passage way leading to several other pathways. These pathways were created during the Middle Ages to serve as convenience for the Royal Knights during times of war. The tunnel had been evacuated over 500 years before the setting of Phantom Blood.

Filled with traps, it was used for death matches between the knights, the most notable being Tarkus. The most famous confrontation was the Chain Neck Deathmatch (チェーン

- Situation Finish: Loser is sent flying off the balcony (recreating Dio's defeat in his battle against Jonathan in his castle).
