Technical Dispute Over Tintagel Castle Bridge

23 JUL, 2018 BY  KATHERINE SMALE 

A war of engineering words is brewing over the Tintagel Castle footbridge. 

Year old article in the New Civil Engineer!  The bridge is joined in the middle!!
 Now no-one has mentioned that since article came out!

The row has emerged after former Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) President John Roberts,
accused the footbridge’s designers of presenting a “false” description of the Cornwall Bridge’s structure. 
Read the report in the New Civil Engineer

Latest News Saturday 3rd 2019

I cannot verify this but I have been reliably informed that there has been a rock fall from the roof of Merlins Cave!!
This has still not been verified by English Heritage but the Castle Beach is OPEN
As soon as I get definite news I will put it on your local website www.tintagelweb.co.uk


From the Tintagel Parish Council July minutes!!!!. They admit their is an alignment problem!!
Locals could have told them of this a couple of weeks ago!

 

Georgia Butters. English Heritage representative reported

Georgia Butters, from English Heritage, updated the meeting on the castle bridge. 
  The bridge has been erected but had to be tested and aligned by the engineers who will give a status report and a date of opening.  
The site and cable crane will also have to be cleared before public access is allowed.   A firm date could not be given.  
Decommissioning could be in a couple of weeks. 
The Chairman asked why the Project Manager had not attended and address the council about the delay and was informed that a formal written request had not been made.  
Cllr Tremain asked if a Freedom of Information request could be made regarding compensation to local businesses
financially affected by the long delay.

  Ms Butters was unsure if an application was possible. When asked for details for details of who was responsible she stated a formal request has to be made.  
The Chief Executive of English Heritage is Kate Mabor and the chairman is Sir Tim Lawrence, both from Swindon Head Office.  
The Parish Clerk is to make a formal request to these two to explain about the delay and the question of compensation.

E Mail received today from a parishoner : Maybe there has been a shift in the Island bed, creating a different level !!

Tintagelweb will keep you informed

Message on my Forum Page frpm Lynn Tansey
I have long been interested in learning as much information as possible about this amazing woman Florence Nightingale Richards.
The keeper of the keys to the castle. I have gleaned info from Tintagel book by Mr Dyer, also from odd photos.
But little seems to been known about the depth of her life, & also about her mother Sarah who was also a key holder in her time..
I wonder if this was a legacy or just an opportunity. Did Sarah's mother do the same.
So many questions.
I love to hear stories about women like this because this is real & not part of the myth making that seems to focus on men rather than women in a positive way.
I am not being sexist but rather an observer of reality. I would appreciate what anybody else has to offer about these incredible women.
I was so pleased to see that a couple of likeminded ladies also recognised this & created a lasting memento plaque in memory of Florence.
Well done ladies!

TINTAGEL CARNIVAL REPORT FROM PHIL ASTON (SECRETARY)

Saturday 3rd August saw the end of another fantastic Tintagel Carnival Week with the ever popular Grand Carnival Parade.
Starting from Wicket's Field, Bossiney and wending its way through the village and back, led by Nancy the Shire Horse & Harry the Shetland pony 50 brilliant entries including visiting Carnival royalty and marching bands entertained a packed village crowd.
The Overall Carnival Winning Entry was Trevenna Ladies Home Guard – Landa & Ladies and the Best Comedy Award went Tech Gnome – May Family & Co.
The Best Dressed Collector Trophy was won by Snapdragon – Lou Handley and the Best Queens Float was from Delabole.
Phil Aston, Chairman Tintagel Carnival, said, "What a fantastic Carnival Parade, a big thank-you to all the entries for their amazing contributions,
the Carnival Committee, visiting judges, Kathy Rowse (Queens compare),
Mel Rowe (Parade compare), the volunteers for all their hard work and the large village crowd for digging deep into their pockets to help raise money
to allow the Carnival to donate to local charities.
Next year more than ever we are in need of new committee members and/or volunteers to help organise & run Carnival Week.
Come on Tintagel, if you want a Carnival next year we need you to volunteer, come forward and join the committee.

REMEMBER .....NO VOLUNTEERS....NO CARNIVAL!!   .
