LOOE POOL
Excalibur in Cornwall Again

This lagoon at Porthleven, separated from Mount's Bay and the open sea by a thin stretch of stones and sand, is one of the two Cornish sites that claim to be the home of the Lady of the Lake. Looe Pool is the place most closely aligned to the Medieval Romantic descriptions of the lake into which Bedwyr returned Excalibur after the fateful Battle of Camlann. The battle may have taken place in the surrounding countryside and the wounded Arthur could easily have been taken off to the Isle of Avalon (the Scilly Isles perhaps) from Mount's Bay.
