Over 100 Quarrymen from the Penlee Quarry, Newlyn near Penzance. were called upon to help rebuild the castle for the party

Well I can't get the stonemasons but here are over a hundred quarrymen to get the stone. The photograph  was loaned to the Cornishmen by George Hoare of Penzance. Mr Hoare also put names to the faces and believes the picture was taken prior to the 1914 -18 war.

Oops, after re-building King Arthur's Castle, our Masons have moved and
rebuilt King Arthur's Castle Hotel on top of the Island. We're sure that our
party-goers will be wonderfully comfortable, but what will English Heritage
say when they find that we had to level of the top of the island (and grind
up all those boring old archeaological remains) to get a firm foundation?
