The third of John Neale's books looking at Cornish rivers takes us down the Fowey, from its source on Bodmin Moor to its estuary at Fowey itself. Beginning near Brown Willy, the river soon flows near the famous Jamaica Inn and on to Golitha Falls, passing age-old slate caverns before turning abruptly to make its way toward Lanhydrock House, Boconnoc House and Restormel Castle and on to Lostwithiel with its ancient church, historic buildings and fourteenth-century bridge. Soon the Fowey widens as it is joined by Lerryn Creek and flows on to St Winnow and Golant before greeting Bodinnick, Polruan and Fowey itself. Along the way we meet ghosts, old characters, an oddball vicar and a star of the silver screen; discover churches and old houses; learn of literary associations, myths and legends; and unravel a mystery or two! The River Fowey is the golden thread which weaves many facets of landscape and seascape together as we explore one of Cornwall's magical rivers.
