Dan delighted sale of Tintagel land has been delayed

Dan Rogerson MP has welcomed the decision by the Duchy of Cornwall to delay the sale of land and an historic engine house at the Prince of Wales and Trewarmett quarry near Tintagel. 

The site in the Trebarwith valley had been due for sale by auction on 18th September, however the sale will now be delayed until November following requests from residents in the area and from Dan for it not to go ahead at such short notice. 

Commenting Dan said “Of course it is up to the Duchy to manage their land and assets, but given the interest in this site and of the engine house to local people I am delighted that they have agreed to a short pause in the sale of the land. I have spoken with the Duchy of Cornwall and will now be contacting local residents who have raised their concerns with me, so that we can use this pause to discuss any ideas the local community and the Prince of Wales Engine House Society have for the future of the site.”
