We are delighted the project has been selected as a Finalist, despite the 2020 lockdown and stiff competition. The winner of the Landscape Institute Awards 2020 ‘Excellence in Heritage and Culture’ category will be announced in November.

July 2019 saw the completion of the landscape and footpath enhancements. August 2019, and the new iconic footbridge at Tintagel Castle by Ney & Partners and William Matthews Associates was opened to the public. The footbridge was formally opened by Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall in July 2020.

The project is an example of how multi-disciplinary environmental design approach, combined with the team’s response to place brought our Client’s ambitions to fruition. The site is stunning and challenging in equal measure, and the project really does enhance the unique sense of place.
