Through the Tintagel Castle: Bridge Design Competition, English Heritage, the guardian of this scheduled ancient monument, is now searching for a dedicated and talented architectural and engineering team to design a cliff-top footbridge. The new structure aims to trace the path, now lost through collapse and erosion, of the original land-link, creating a twenty-first century connection.
Twenty-eight metres higher than the current crossing, 72 metres in span and roughly 2.4 metres wide (allowing safe foot traffic in both directions), the bridge will transform the visitor experience, opening up exhilarating views of the Island, coastline and Atlantic seascape. It will also create a direct route to the Island, relinking the castle with its original entrance.
