In the heart of lonely Bodmin Moor, Cornwall, Dozmary Pool is where, according to Arthurian legend, the wounded King Arthur was carried by Sir Bedivere. Arthur commanded Bedivere three times to cast his famous sword, Excalibur, into the waters. From the lake an arm rose ("clothed in white samite, mystic, wonderful" according to Tennyson), caught the sword and sank with it beneath the surface.
