Robert Graves moved here in 1929 with his second wife, Laura Riding. At this time, Graves was already a well known for his war narratives, but it wasn’t until after he met Laura that he pursued to awake his creative talents.

When the Spanish civil war broke out, Graves and Riding moved to America to be safe. In 1939, Riding left him for Schuyler Jackson. The relationship to Riding, was the inspiration for his novel, ‘The White Goddess’.
