The sale of a literary landmark

Godrevy Island, Cornwall

The beach that is said to have been featured in Virginia Woolf's seminal novel To the Lighthouse has been sold for £80,000. Upper Towans beach in Cornwall is located opposite Godrevy Island upon which sits the inspiring lighthouse.

Happily the new owner will not alter the beach in any way and it will remain accessible for all to enjoy.
