ENGLISH HER­ITAGE

Cornwall Life - - CHRISTMAS IN CORNWALL -

Along­side the ma­jor at­trac­tions like Pen­den­nis Cas­tle, Cornwall is home to hun­dreds of English Her­itage sites, many of which are free to visit and lit­tle-known but vi­tally im­por­tant to our his­tory.

Among the 382 places listed on its site in Cornwall there are iron­age set­tle­ments, mys­te­ri­ous Celtic stones and stone cir­cles, Ne­olithic burial cham­bers and an­cient vil­lage set­tle­ments long since aban­doned.

You can be­come part of his­tory with the cur­rent Sign a Slate cam­paign at Tin­tagel Cas­tle. For a fiver you can sign your name, leave a ded­i­ca­tion, or write a mes­sage on one of the thou­sands of slate tiles which will form the walk­way of the spec­tac­u­lar new bridge link­ing the main­land and is­land.
