Daphne Du Maurier Walk: The House on the Strand 16th May 2007
Path between Treesmill and Par Beach
The writer Daphne du Maurier was born 100 years ago on May 13th 1907 and over the last few weeks we’ve been following in her footsteps, as well as those of the characters in her novels. For our final walk, Fiona Clampin visits the Cornish town of Par, near where du Maurier spent the last years of her life in a house called Kilmarth and where, as guide Dawn Vivian explains, she set one of her last novels - 'The House on the Strand'.
'Reading Daphne: A Guide to the writing of Daphne du Maurier for readers and book groups'  by Ella Westland  is published byTruran, ISBN 10 1850222134.
