Cornish Winter Break 10: Tintagel 2 Exploring the Ruins

We are run by volunteers, all our money comes from donations, and is all used to run activities that help autistic people.

THE CASTLE GROUNDS – THE ASCENT

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.
