King Arthur’s final resting place…

King Arthur

King Arthur by Charles Ernest Butler

The book ‘King Arthur’s Battle for Britain’ by Eric Walmsley suggests that Lady’s Island may have been the inspiration for the Isle of Avalon, the final resting place of the legendary figure, King Arthur. 

This story was shared with us by Paul Doyle from Our Lady’s Island, who’s father, Oliver, helped the author source images of this wonderful place for the book. Paul has a Facebook page called ‘The Hidden Gems of Carne‘ which is full of interesting stories from the locality.
