The Minack Chronicles






























In cornwall last month staying in L's cottage 
I discovered the books of Derek Tangye - 
the Minack Chronicles.  


I read Cottage on a Cliff while we were on holiday 
and today have just finished A Gull on the Roof, 
the first book recording their move from the bright 
lights of London to a dirt floored cottage on the 
Cornish coast. I'm totally caught up in their story, 
their love of the land and their pets and wild 
animals.
