Jamaica Inn, Cornwall

Indelibly inscribed in local lore and nationally recognised as the inspiration for Daphne du Maurer's novel of the same name, Jamaica Inn began as a lonely inn offering shelter to those braving the desolation of Bodmin Moor. The original range of the inn dates from the mid-late 18th century, which was subsequently extended in the 19th century, complete with a new stable block, and even more so in the 20th century, as the Inn's renown extended into popular culture.

The instruction comprised a Heritage Impact Assessment (Heritage Statement) to accompany a statutory consent application for internal alterations, the demolition of 20th century outbuildings and the construction of a new function suite.
