A bronze sculpture has been revealed at Tintagel Castle despite claims the Cornwall landmark is becoming too much like Disneyland.

The statue is the centrepiece of a new visitor experience which explores the Castle's history and the role of legends in shaping the site for visitors. The new attraction will go on public display at the end of the week alongside a series of panels charting Tintagel's year history.

The statue is so large it had to be airlifted onto the site by helicopter. English Heritage say it's called Gallos - the Cornish equivalent of power - and has been inspired both by King Arthur and other stories from the Castle's history. In a letter the Cornwall Association of Local Historians called on caretakers to highlight the Castle's true past instead of focusing so heavily on the Arthurian legend.

There were also complaints after the head of Merlin was carved into the rock-face on the site. In reply English Heritage defended their approach to preserving and celebrating Tintagel saying they were committed to telling its story. The public will get their chance to assess the sculpture over the Bank Holiday weekend when it opens on Friday.
