Up early and ready for take off….

A few of us Rangers were up early this morning to help ensure the safety of walkers out on Glebe Cliff at Tintagel.

English Heritage needed to get a few tons of gravel across to Tintagel Head, the island home to Tintagel Castle. Many years ago this would have been done by peasants and slaves carrying numerous buckets no doubt. These days there’s the quicker and less labour intensive method of getting a helicopter to airlift materials from mainland to island.

Glebe Cliff is under the care of the National Trust, but we were only too happy to help English Heritage with their project by allowing them to use part of Glebe Cliff for the dumpy bags and helicopter. Some of us were even willing to get out of bed early to be on hand to guide early morning walkers away from the danger area and explain to them what was happening.
