In October 2018, they started work on a landmark project to reconnect Tintagel’s divided landscape. In the Middle Ages, Tintagel’s residents walked from one side of the site to the other using a narrow land bridge as high as the cliff tops. But the crossing disappeared between the 14th and 17th centuries, leaving the castle divided by a natural chasm. The new footbridge reinstates the original route, offering visitors the chance to experience Tintagel Castle the way its medieval inhabitants once did.
