Drove across Bodmin Moor to the pub called "Jamaica Inn," scene of the novel by Daphne Du Maurier. The pub was built as a coaching house in 1750. We looked at the museum , partly about the authoress and partly about Cornish smuggling through the years, the subject of the book. I had read almost all Daphne's books years ago, when I lived in Plymouth, but still ...
Tuesday finally arrives and we're on the 1803 out of Exeter St David's after a quick beer in the Great Western.

... with a bailey inside and was made out of shale. It was built in the 12th century on a hill overlooking the River Fowey. It had a double set of entrance gates and what looks like a dry moat. This castle bounced around in ownership during the 12th century and the only notable owner was The Black Prince Edward III. He used the castle between 1354 and 1356 to gather his feudal lords so they could show their allegiance ...
