Wrecks, Raids and Ambuscades
People say that, historically, nothing much has happened in Looe, Cornwall. I beg to differ.
Wrecks, Raids and Ambuscades
I moved to Looe, Cornwall in 2001 and have an interest in its local history and had some involvement with Looe Museum when it was under the stewardship of Barbara Birchwood Harper. During this time I came across many intriguing historical incidents concerning this part of Cornwall and thought them a good basis for fictionalised versions.

Why fiction? Because this allows me to use imagination and speculation applied to the historical record to create vivid tales and to provide possible answers to the questions and mysteries therein.

What happened to the diamonds from the shipwreck of the East Indianman, The Albermarle, near Polperro in 1708?

Why was Lord Glyn of Morval travelling to Tavistock on the day that he was ambushed and murdered in 1471?

Why was the Danish national hero Moritz Hartman so keen to avoid going home from Denmark’s first Indian colony that he must have blessed the shipwreck of The Flying Wulf, at Looe, in 1692?

What happened when the Spanish Knight Pedro el Nino raided Looe in 1405?
