TINTAGEL

The village of Tintagel is in Cornwall and not too far from the town of Bude. The village is well known for what is  called Tintagel Castle  and this may have a connection to the legendary King Arthur.   In approximately 1136 AD Tintagel was mentioned in Historia  Regium  Brittanniae by  Geoffrey Of Monmouth.
The Cornish name for the village was Tre war  Venydh. The Post Office came in the middle of the nineteenth century AD.
"The Old Post Office" is from the 14 th century  and is owned by the National Trust.   Tintagel is quite near to Bodmin Moor.
