Cornish castle linked to King Arthur at risk from rising sea levels

A Cornish castle immortalised in British mythology as the place of King Arthur’s conception is at risk of tumbling into the sea as climate change increases the pace of coastal erosion. Tintagel Castle is one of several sites at risk of being lost forever, English Heritage has warned, as rising seas pound the coastline. The heritage body described the rate of land lost over the last few years as “alarming”, warning that sea levels are rising at their fastest rate for nearly three millennia. English Heritage is hoping to raise £40,000 to help fix the damage caused by last winter’s storms. To donate visit
