Lightning Bolts And The Wizard's Lair

PTSG Electrical Services

Tintagel Castle, where King Arthur and wiley wizard Merlin made their home in the days of the Knights of the Round Table, now requires lightening protection.

The castle stands on a spectacular North Cornwall headland. The current path to get too from Tintagel Village is challenging, with over 100 steps. In October 2018, Historic England (which is responsible for what is a major tourist attraction) started work on a footbridge to create an 'aerial' crossing from the mainland to the headland.

Now complete, the bridge requires the design, supply and install of earthing/lightning protection. It is a prestigious project, something that has been in the planning for several years. Historic England's contractor America UK has appointed Premier Technical Services Group (PTSG Electrical Services) - and the company is relishing the prospect of showing their capabilities on structures other than buildings.

Picture: In the depths of Cornwall but not a bridge too far for PTSG Electrical Services to show off their earthing/lightning protection skills.
