Letter: Lighthouse family

Click to follow
Sir: The Godrevy Lighthouse ("To the lighthouse no more: Woolf's Cornish inspiration faces a dark future", 29 January) was near Talland House which, contrary to your report, was not the home of the Woolf family. It was the summer home of the Stephen family where Virginia Woolf (nee Stephen) spent most of her summers as a child from 1882-1894. Virginia Stephen did not meet Leonard Woolf until about 1904 and she married him in 1912.
