New Bridge for Historic Site

New Bridge for Historic Site
The accuracy of the Trimble SX10 lends itself to a challenging cliff top survey in Tintagel as a new bridge linking the headland and the ruins of the 13th century castle nears completion.
Rugged, beautiful and steeped in Arthurian legend, Tintagel is set high on the North Cornwall coast where the jagged headland reaches out into the Atlantic. A spectacular setting, it is also one of English Heritage’s most visited sites. This is despite the challenging link between the headland and the ruins of the 13th century castle – the legendary home of King Arthur – being a difficult scramble up and down hundreds of steps and via a modest wooden bridge.

However, access is set to become considerably easier thanks to a £4m project which will see a new 72 m footbridge constructed high above the current wooden structure. Due for completion in Spring 2019, the new bridge design is based on a prize-winning concept submitted in a competition run by English Heritage.
