Cornwall has long since been the destination for writers and artists since railways stretched across our country. But Cornwall has become synonymous with clotted cream and pasties. And yet- the county offers the individual a window on the sublime. There is nothing like a crashing Atlantic swell at Sennen Cove nor the quiet emptiness of Bodmin moor. And whilst northern industrial towns celebrate and spurn their heritage, picture postcard tin mines veil a Cornish history beset by trial and tragedy. Indeed this polarity: great beauty – great darkness has been, and continues to be the inspiration for our greatest artists and greatest writers alike. We want to show you what they have stared at and share with you the environment that helped compel them to write.
