A proposal by Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to improve the understanding and protection of many of Cornwall’s vulnerable historical monuments has received a significant boost.
A National Lottery grant of almost £90,000, in addition to funding from Historic England and Cornwall Heritage Trust, has facilitated further development and planning work, focussed on King Arthur’s Hall on Bodmin Moor.
This immediate project is just a small part of the larger ambition to safeguard the future of many more of Cornwall’s 140 scheduled historic monuments, such as hill forts and stone circles, considered to be at risk.
To explore the landscape of Cornwall is to take a walk through history, surrounded by atmospheric monuments dating from the iron age and the middle ages as well as the more recent iconic tin mines of the 18th and 19th century.
