Lady wowed as she correctly gets letter addressed to ‘woman in Cornwall shed’
An author was left stunned are she correctly received a letter addressed to "woman in Cornwall shed".
The sender had addressed the letter to Katrina Davis, who lives in a shed "near a village, 21 miles from Land's End".
It went on to tell postal workers that the outbuilding "featured on BBC2 Simon Reeve Cornwall programme".
Ms Davies, who spells her first name with a C and has an E in her surname, said it was a "sterling effort" from Royal Mail who sent her the letter.
It got to her despite the envelope missing a town, street name or postcode.
Catrina has lived in the shed, which was included in a segment on travel documentarian Reeve's BBC series, for more than a decade.

"It's just great that they made the effort and didn't just throw it away."
While the sender watched her TV appearance in November, Ms Davies said she hasn't watch it herself yet.
