Rebecca, Daphne’s most famous novel, is set along this dramatic coastline. Come and celebrate the anniversary of Daphne’s birth and enjoy the beauty of this walk with Dr Ella Westland, a literary expert and specialist in Daphne du Maurier and her work. Walk to Polridmouth cove, the setting for the shipwreck scene in Rebecca and then climb to the Gribbin Head, with stunning views over St Austell Bay and onwards to the tiny port of Polkerris. A circular walk of about 5 miles. Strenuous with some stiles.
