Dorothy Richardson : Biography

Dorothy Richardson in Cornwall

A short film about Richardson in Cornwall, featuring the memories of Bridget Woods, daughter of Norah Hickey, Richardson's landlady at Rose Cottage, Trevone, and Cosy Corner, Harlyn Bay.

Norah Hickey also owned and ran the Cot Tea Rooms. Before these properties passed to Norah, Bridget's great-aunts Beluah and Nellie Ponder owned all three, and Richardson was great friends with all three Trevone women.

In the film Rebecca Bowler, Research Associate on the Dorothy Richardson Editions Project, interviews Bridget and her husband Brian. They relate the history of their family in Trevone, Bridget's memories of Alan and Dorothy, and a culinary document in Richardson's hand is unearthed in the family papers.
