Welcome to this page!
This page is dedicated to the characters and settings of 'The Golden Sword'.
Maybe you've read the book already and formed your own opinions of just what my characters look like. If so please ignore these pictures! However, in my mind, Tamar, Arthur and Michael Jolly look pretty much like this.
|And then Michael Jolly|
|Not forgetting Arthur Penhaligon!|
Maybe it would be a good idea to pop in the map at this point, you can find it at the front of the book ...
|The map shows Pendrym, Lyskeret and Bodmin Moor.|
|On the moors...heading towards the quarry.|
|From the top of the moors, looking out over an old mine.|
|A moorland foal.|
|One of the Highland, long-horned cattle.|
So with that glimpse of Bodmin Moor and its inhabitants, I'll lead you on down into Lyskeret town. This is Liskeard, my home town. It's a small market town - yes we really do have a farmers' market here during the week.
I've got some of my watercolour paintings spread around in a variety of houses of aspects of our town; paintings I completed some time ago, well before the writing took centre stage.
|Lyskeret High Street.|
|A street in Lyskeret, but not Station Road.|
|Station Road as in Chapter One.|
|The river winding down through the valley to Pendrym and on, out to sea.|
|The train from Lyskeret to Pendrym|
|Pendrym by the harbour.|
|Crabbing in action.|
|Mackerel fishing anyone?|
|Or fancy a spot of alternative fishing... for sharks?|
|All you need to go crabbing.|
Just a short tour - but a sweet one I hope.
