Welcome to the Daphne du Maurier website
In March this year we re-launched the newly updated Daphne du Maurier website. We extend thanks to the du Maurier Browning family for its on-going support and to John Baxendale for all his work running the site for so many years.
On this site you will find information about Daphne du Maurier's life and work and about her family and associates. There is a forum which provides an opportunity for Daphne's readers, followers, admirers and fans to contribute their views and knowledge, a news page to keep you up to date with the latest information on people, places and events connected with Daphne and much more.
Pictured above is the Gribbin Head, just outside Fowey, a feature of the landscape that was so important to Daphne du Maurier and her writing.
We hope that people with an interest in Daphne du Maurier and her writing will enjoy the website and that they will contribute with comments, articles and pictures to help us build a lively and comprehensive information resource.
"I walked this land with a dreamerís freedom and with a waking manís perception Ė places, houses whispered to me their secrets and shared with me their sorrows and their joys. And in return I gave them something of myself, a few of my novels passing into the folk-lore of this ancient place."
