    how far from Wheal Leisure was Truro supposed to be according to Winston Graham, the way BBC show it would make one thick it was just 3 or 4 miies, which cannot be true?

    According to Graham's 1953 map it shows the mine about ten miles from Truro - making the trip feasible - I had presumed he was on the South West coasy much further away.

    Thanks for the link.

  4. You're welcome. Trouble is, I've been to the locations in this production, so I'm having trouble watching because I know the real distance between "Truro", "Trenwith", and "Wheal Leisure".
