The austere landscape of Bodmin Moor inspired Daphne du Maurier to write her novel "Jamaica Inn". The eponymous inn is still standing today on the busy road between Launceston and Bodmin, and this picture was taken from the car park. The mountain in the back at the far right is Brown Willy, the highest mountain in Cornwall.
"Jamaica Inn" is, together with "Rebecca", the best novel by Daphne du Maurier, who, like no other, described the people and the land here. Unfortunately the novel was completetely messed up by Alfred Hichcock, and especially Charles Laughton, in the film with the same name.
