At the present time Watergate Bay is generally understood to be the long beach lying between Trevelga (two miles from Newquay) and Mawgan Porth. In the story Grampound Road Station, then the nearest station to Newquay (twelve miles) is called Marjoram Gate (Chap. I). The house called the Look-out (Chap. II), on which the party set their hearts and which they eventually succeeded in obtaining is sketched from the "Battery," but transposed as to site to where "Quay House" stands. Bellevue Terrace is "Acland Terrace." situated at the northern end of Fore Street. The Blue Lion is now called the "Central Hotel" and the Nag's Head (Chap. III) is the "Red Lion." The "island" (Chap. IV) now carries a bungalow and is connected with the mainland by a light iron bridge. The White Tower (Chap. VII) is the ancient "Huers Hut" on Towan Head.
