My new friend Sandra, at Barnstaple, suggested we go on an outing to Tintagel while I was in the UK – and how could I resist visiting the legendary birthplace of King Arthur? (Lest you forget, he is commemorated everywhere, including the pub!) These photos were taken at ‘King Arthur’s Great Hall’, once a private house but now a commemoration of the legend, complete with a throne and Round Table, and with beautiful stained glass windows commemorating various aspects of the story. Needless to say, the site has featured in numerous films and television series. We also walked along the magical St Nectan’s Glen, a beautiful river walk leading down to the cave and waterfall where the 6th century saint was said to have lived. Unfortunately it was an awful day, cold and wet, so we didn’t make the walk to the medieval castle (built on an ancient Dark Age trading site) but I have been there before.
