Artist's Description

The ‘Jamaica Inn’ has this to tell about its link with the world famous author Daphne Du Maurier:
On a cold and eerie night in 1930, writer Daphne du Maurier arrived at Jamaica Inn high on the windswept Bodmin Moor (Cornwall, UK). The following day she went riding with a friend but mist suddenly came down, they got lost and it started to get dark. In the end they saved themselves by dismounting and seeing if their horses would lead them back, which thankfully they did. Daphne stayed a few more nights to recover from the ordeal and learned about the legendary history of Jamaica Inn including the smuggling that had gone on there. This, the atmosphere of the hostelry and the wild moor inspired her to write her most famous and compelling novel, Jamaica Inn.
