Latest News Saturday July 13th 2019

I cannot verify this but I have been reliably informed that there has been a rock fall from the roof of Merlins Cave!!

As soon as I get definite news I will put it on your local website www.tintagelweb.co.uk

Latest news No idea when the bridge will open!!
Can this be due to BREXIT!!. Everything else is

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
