Thursday Thought: Imagination comes true!

We visited the great house Lanhydrock in Cornwall during my book tour in July and met with Paul Holden, the National Trust keeper of the house and collections. We had a long, wonderful conversation. This culminated with going down to the estate steward’s office and went to the private part at the rear.

Do you remember the character Joseph Clymo in “The Miner & the Viscount”?

Steward’s Office

The character is based upon Joseph Clymo who was married to my mother’s youngest sister, Rhoda. They lived in Bodmin, near Lanhydrock, with their son Vivian and daughter Morwenna.

It was so exciting to me for sit at my uncle’s desk!
