Diving Belles By Lucy Wood

Is Cornwall currently the most popular county on television and radio at present?

This morning at 11 o’clock on Radio 4 Extra was the first in a series of Lucy Wood’s short stories based on Cornish Folklore. Beautifully narrated by Amanda Lawrence they are  something to look forward to on a Monday morning with a cuppa tea.

Read the Independent review of Diving Belles, the book here

Or buy the book for yourself here


The radio version also featured music by the Cornish folk band ‘All The Fires’ who seem to be from Falmouth!

Check out their tunes on their MySpace page here

Wow, this gets better…. check out their You Tube videos here

And a couple from the Princess Pavilions better known to Falmouth folk as the Beer Gardens! This is somewhat different to the stuff I used to listen there in the summer of ’89 sipping on my Orangina.


What a great find  – Goodnight!
