Tintagel Footbridge Reunites Historic Coastal Castle in Cornwall
Sometimes attempts to revive or fix old architecture can come off rather cheesy or contrived, but this footbridge in Cornwall is absolutely stunning.
Read more about the project in this piece from designboom.
a new footbridge has reunited the two separated halves of a medieval castle in south-west england for the first time in more than 500 years. tintagel castle, which is located on a rocky peninsula in north cornwall, has been inextricably linked with the legend of king arthur and the knights of the round table since the 12th century. selected following an international design competition, the new bridge — which spans a 58-meter (190-foot) gorge — follows the line of the original route between the gatehouse on the mainland and the courtyard on the headland jutting out to sea.
