The dramatic and enchanting ruins of Tintagel Castle perched on spectacular rugged coastline. Shown in sepia 'old postcard' style which enhances the landscape given the difficult light. The castle is in North Cornwall, SW England, UK. According to legend Tintagel is the place of conception of King Arthur, famous for his Knights of the Round Table. His father, Uther Pendragon, used Merlin the wizard's sorcery to disguise himself as Gorlois (also his enemy) the husband of Igraine, whom he loved, to gain access to the castle for his tryst. The castle is in a superior defensive position which straddles high ground and precipitous cliffs on the mainland across to an island linked to the mainland by a pedestrian bridge. Another controversial higher bridge has been built. One of my favourite places!
