Block Woolf's 'Lighthouse' view? No, say fans
As I was going to St. Ives....
Virginia Woolf relatives defend view 'To The Lighthouse'
Relatives and fans of the author Virginia Woolf are trying to block development plans that would "destroy" a famous literary view.
One of the modernist writer's most famous novels, To The Lighthouse, was inspired by the view from a family holiday home in St Ives, Talland House.
Developers have put in plans to build six apartments opposite the house where Woolf spent her childhood summers.
Opponents say the development would block the view to Godrevy lighthouse.
“What is the meaning of life? That was all -- a simple question; one that tended to close in on one with years, the great revelation had never come. The great revelation perhaps never did come. Instead, there were little daily miracles, illuminations, matches struck unexpectedly in the dark; here was one.”
