Tintagel Castle

29 September 2003

We rented a cottage in Cornwall for a week, at a hamlet called Trevilett, a couple of miles inland from Tintagel.

On the Monday morning, we went for a walk to Tintagel Castle, perched on top of an almost detached headland, the gap being straddled by this bridge. The gap is believed to have been significantly eroded since the "island" was first occupied.

From the top of the "island", some 83m above sea level, the view down to the cove, and past the main courtyard to the mainland, is spectacular
