It was a thrill to spend an afternoon at Cresswell Pele Tower, setting for much of ‘Star of the Sea’.  Thanks to an inspirational comunity archeology project the once-derelict building has been superbly restored – .see here: It was a pleasure to meet many of the wonderful visitors and volunteers – there was a lot of interest in the novel and in all things Cresswell. A return visit is planned for an evening talk at the Tower – watch this space!
