So … this is an SSSI inside an AONB, both bottomless and very shallow, romantic and in fact rather dull, dark and mysterious and glittering and pretty but it’s been here a while and acquired its fair share of legends over the years.
This is where Arthur received Excalibur from the lady of the lake (she was very short appar­ently) and ultimately where Sir Bedivere returned it, demanding compens­ation for emotional distress, after it proved unfit for purpose at the battle of Camlann.

Oh well.

I forgot to add this to the rather heavy image dump today. This is actually where we had lunch on Sunday, on Bodmin but not actually on the top of Bodmin.
