Ronald Duncan's Writing Hut
Ronald Duncan wrote much of his work in his writing hut, perched on the Devon side of the Marsland Valley. The hut still stands on the South West Coastal Path overlooking Marsland Mouth on the Cornish side of the Marsland Valley and just round the headland from Welcombe Mouth beach where the Duncan family often picnicked.
Built on the site of an old lookout point in the 1960's, the hut provided Duncan with working studio in all seasons, and he composed his epic poem, Man, there. The hut still provides a refuge for walkers and writers alike to stop a while and take in the beautiful sights of the South West Coast.
The location of the hut can be found on the map above and links to websites that mention it are below.
