New footbridge in Cornwall

This item appears on page 4 of the January 2020 issue.

In Cornwall, United Kingdom, a footbridge over a rocky chasm now connects the ruins of Tintagel Castle, on a land-tied island, with the mainland. Opened on Aug. 7, the bridge restores a medieval crossing that fell into the ocean centuries ago.
Before the opening of the 223-foot bridge, visitors had to walk down a steep flight of steps on one side of the chasm, cross a shorter footbridge and then climb up stairs on the other side. Tintagel Castle, which dates to the 13th century, has long been associated with Arthurian legend as the castle of Uther Pendragon.
