The winning design for a bridge which will connect the historic Tintagel Castle - legendary birthplace of King Arthur - to the mainland has been revealed.
A jury of experts chose the winning design over 136 others in a two stage international design competition.
Ney & Partners and William Matthews Associates won with what the panel said was their "elegant proposal and poetic gap".
The team’s inspiration came from Celtic history and the original drawbridge that would have defended Tintagel Castle. They want to use local slate for the bridge’s decking and contrasting weathered and non-weathered steel - it's hoped this will give the bridge a shimmering ephemeral quality, allowing the bridge to harmonise with the coastal landscape.
They'll now proceed with the architectural and engineering commission from English Heritage - thought to cost around £4 million.
The new bridge will sit 28 metres higher than the current crossing, and it's hoped it will improve access to the historic site.
