Place House in the centre of Fowey- Built 13th century owned by Treffy family. Treffy family live there today. Not open to public.

Then and now King of Prussia pub.

Fowey - Daphne Du Maurier literary festival

Neptune Point house built by Rashleigh family (who also own Menabilly). The House at Menabilly is the inspiration for Manderley in Daphne Du Mauriers book Rebecca. The gates are from the entrance at Menabilly, now at Neptune point.


View of boat house at Menabilly. Also view of Gribben Head in distance.

Chapel of Ease built by Rashleigh Family on Menabilly estate. It was too far for the family to travel to St Finbarrus Church in Fowey so they built their own. In the distance you can see Menabilly.

flower ideas



After my usual trawl through charity shops I had to get a picture of the pattern above...from a bag.
Thinking of some further flower designs I photographed some flowers from my garden.
