Rural: What, when, where?

Relive tales of suspense and smuggling in the Cornish town of Fowey this Sunday. Three organised walks enable you to follow in the footsteps of the romantic novelist Daphne du Maurier (1907-1986) who set many of her stories around this part of the Cornish coast. The Daphne du Maurier festival this weekend includes exhibitions, plays and a service at Tregaminion Chapel near Menabilly House. The author lived in Menabilly in 1943 and used it as the model for Manderley, the house in Rebecca - which later became a Hitchcock film.

Holy Communion at Tregaminion Chapel is on Sunday at 9.30am; the My Cousin Rachel walk, on Sunday at 10.30am, starts at Readymoney Beach, Fowey, pounds 3.50; the Loving Spirit walk, on Sunday at 1.30pm, starts at Poiruan Quay, pounds 3.50 (call 01726 74324 for details).
