Pill Creek

I once stayed in this lovely Richard Rogers house in Pill Creek, Cornwall, with its rubber floors and moveable walls. I cooked for the owner, a remarkable 90-something year old lady who lived opposite. Dicky had been married to her daughter. Her more traditional house on the opposite side of the creek had a modern wing he’d built for her and her husband. It was a gallery, and full of great art, including many gifts from British artists from the 20s to the  60s – Bridget Riley, Ben Hamilton, etc. As the years went by, she said, the money situation would demand she choose which one to sell next. So the few dozen she had left were stunners.
