A plan for a block of flats and accompanying car park is before Cornwall Council for approval. If built, it will mean that Virginia Woolf’s view from Grade II-listed Talland House, and other views, will be lost. You can check the application no. PA15/04337 online. The owner of Talland House confirms that the house is not as tall as portrayed in 2014/2472/EX01 East elevation, and that therefore the view will be lost.

The VWSGB has sent a message on behalf of the Society (as has the IVWS), but please make contact individually as well. The Council has received more than 60 letters of complaint so far, but Woolfians can do better than that – the more people who complain, the louder will be our voice!

If you possibly can, please do one or more – or all! – of the following asap. Grateful thanks to those of you who have already done so.

The Virginia Woolf Society of Great Britain is a non-profit organisation that aims to raise the profile of Virginia Woolf and promote the reading and discussion of her works.

Formed in August 1998 the Society is supported by an Executive Council of elected volunteers (read more about the Society's Constitution). An Editorial Committee produces the Virginia Woolf Bulletin three times a year (January, May and September), as well as a number of other publications. Woolf-related events and talks, open to members only, are held throughout the year.

The Society welcomes new members. If you are interested in joining, you can print off the form from the Membership page and send it with your payment to the address provided. At the present time the Society is only able to accept payments in pounds sterling or US dollars.

On this website you will find information about the Society and information about Virginia Woolf herself. Under Virginia Woolf Resources you will find a wealth of Woolf information, including a short biography, bibliographies, articles, illustrations and links to related sites. If you want to know more about Woolf, her works and the Society, the best place to start is with the links below. The Useful Links area provides a guide to websites of other Woolf societies, archives, publishers and bookshops.
