Excerpt from A Cornish HarbourThis humorous account of Newquay in Cornwall - formerly published under the title of "A Marine Residence" - was written by James Payn back in the early 'seventies before the advent of the passenger railway to the little town, then only a village of some 800 souls all told.When Payn wrote, the whole bay from Newquay headland to Trevose headland (near Padstow), some ten miles as the crow flies from point to point, was known as Watergate Bay, called in this story Boddlecombe Bay, while Newquay is called Boddlecombe. At the present time Watergate Bay is generally understood to be the long beach lying between Trevelga (two miles from Newquay) and Mawgan Porth. In the story Grampound Road Station, then the nearest station to Newquay (twelve miles) is called Marjoram Gate (Chap. I). The house called the Look-out (Chap. II), on which the party set their hearts and which they eventually succeeded in obtaining is sketched from the "Battery," but transposed as to site to where "Quay House" stands. Bellevue Terrace is "Acland Terrace." situated at the northern end of Fore Street. The Blue Lion is now called the "Central Hotel" and the Nag's Head (Chap. III) is the "Red Lion." The "island" (Chap. IV) now carries a bungalow and is connected with the mainland by a light iron bridge. The White Tower (Chap. VII) is the ancient "Huers Hut" on Towan Head.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
