Tintagel, Cornwall

At Rocky Valley, about a mile north-east of Tintagel, are two ancient carved labyrinths on a rock wall. Map reference SX 073 893, reachable by walking the coast path from Tintagel toward Boscastle or by a path from the B3263 road by the Trout Farm. The dating is uncertain, ranging from about 2000BCE to 500CE. [Pennick, pp.24-25 & plate 3; Fisher, pp.13, 28 & 155, with colour photo on p.13, says the grooves are cut with an iron tool.]
