Re: New Challenge - Ruins or Abandoned Buildings

I think this is part of Tintagel castle....I'm sure I have better ones but they'd need scanning in.

Thanks Pesta Yes you can roam around the town on your own, Some of the buildings are open like the shop and church so you can wander inside those, others like the school and hotel which are shown in the photos you have to look at through windows, there are a few staff there as itís designated a National state park. I seem to remember paying a fee at the entry gate. It is a bit out of the way though, west of Yosemite, on a turn off just North of Mono Lake from the I395, turn off is near Dog town, well worth a visit if in the area though. I managed to take the writing turn off which meant quite a few miles of unsealed road
I have drove past it before as only became aware of it after seeing it on a Ray Mears TV program.
Presumably the falling down ones aren't suitable for roaming around? - 'elf and safety and all that

I'd love to go and have a roam, but I'll never get there so it's great to see your pictures.

That is a shame but it is a bit out of the way! There are quite a few of these ghost town in the US where the Gold boom hit and then disappeared just as quickly, I am glad you liked the pictures anyway

This was a house that was demolished in my old road, it struck me that the only thing left standing was a shelf with wellies on, echos of the family that lived there.

I have been to Tintagel, but I have never been to the castle. Perhaps I should have gone there.
