​WilkinsonEyre shortlisted in Tintagel Castle: Bridge Design Competition

WilkinsonEyre is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted with Atelier One to proceed to the second stage of the Tintagel Castle: Bridge Design Competition.

The new circa £4m bridge will be 28 metres higher than the current crossing and will span 72 metres, offering exhilarating views across Tintagel, the surrounding coastline, and the Atlantic seascape. The brief asks for a beautiful, structurally-elegant bridge which will be in harmony with the exceptional setting; Tintagel Castle being a Scheduled Ancient Monument lying within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

English Heritage plans to reveal the concept designs to the public in an exhibition in December.
