Merlyn on Location

A few weeks ago we decided a change was in order, and headed down to Wadebridge, Cornwall, for a few days. Being by the seaside, however abismal the weather, we had a chance to do something new, and capture a puppet in a completely different setting.

Of course, we chose Meryln, who came into being after a previous costal trip inspired some nautical paintings. She has been decorated with artificial lichen and tiny polymer clay seashells.

Though Merlyn had other ideas (just check out her surly expression!) we did manage to get some good shots of her on the cliffs of Tintagel.

Tintagel is a breathtaking costal town that is the supposed birthplace of King Arthur, and also

home to ‘Merlins Cave’, located beneath Tintagel Castle. It is 100 metres (330 ft) long, passing completely through Tintagel Island from Tintagel Haven on the east to West Cove on the west.The steps down to the cave have been washed away and are blocked off. The only way down today is to clamber down the rocks to the beach. The cave fills with water at high tide, but has a sandy floor and is explorable at low tide.



As usual, Dan of Daniel James Photography was on hand to capture the moment, despite the elements and hoards of toursits making the best of a very blustery day!

With any luck we’ll head off again soon and try for a better day!


Merlyn is now available for sale! Just visit our Etsy shop and she can be yours today!
