I removed the Discworld example because I'm pretty sure this is only for stories set in the real world, and those examples fall under Fantasy Counterpart Culture. Might want to clarify that in the description.

  • Alan Garner's The Weirdstone of Brisingamen is set on and around Alderley Edge, a real location near Macclesfield in Cheshire. Many of the buildings, caves and natural landmarks mentioned in the novel exist and can be visited by walking along the Edge.

How is this an example? I guess some of the placenames in the book could be fictional, but if so, the description should say so. As it stands, it looks like the book just straight-up uses a real location. (Fun fact: I live not many miles from Alderley Edge.)
