Rebecca Part Two: completing a sunny circular walk around Manderley/Menabilly – The Curiously Specific Book Club
We’re halfway through a walk around the edge of the Menabilly estate in Cornwall, where Daphne Du Maurier lived for many years. We’re trying to work out how closely Menabilly aligns with the fictional house of Manderley, as featured in ‘Rebecca’
We find a gatehouse and driveway on the west side, then repair to the local pub to consider how reliable Daphne Du M might be as a narrator. Finally we walk into the woods of Menabilly to the north and come across a lovely surprise – a little bit of the Manderley dreamspace surviving in the real world!
