Clutching his 1930s Bradshaw’s Guide, Michael reaches Bodmin en route to Totnes as he explores the West Country from St Ives to Salisbury Plain. Out on the rugged moor, Michael hears how the celebrated author, Daphne du Maurier, captivated readers between the wars with her tales of smuggling at the Jamaica Inn.
