Following the Battle of Bedegraine, the eleven kings retreat and regroup in Sorhaute, which is stated as being in King Urien's lands. As Bedegraine is described as being in the Lincoln -Sherwood region, we can assume that this city is probably in the Rheged or Pennines - areas generally associated with Urien. Additionally, since Arthur and his allies went to the rescue of Leodegrance in the West, his enemies would have retreated to the North.
