All Quiet on the Western Front  
Go away on holiday, without news sources, and apparently the world explodes! Or London riots, at least. I'm in darkest Gloucestershire all this week with friends and their kids - and lots of Merlin location spotting. It wasn't until I got here that I remembered there's all sorts of Merlin related goodies nearby. Yesterday I was at Puzzlewood, and today may be Clearwell Caves. Yay!

Valderys: Dalek - would you care for some tea?valderys on August 11th, 2011 09:59 am (UTC)
Yes indeed - there was an event last Saturday so I have gone, but I'm happy to go again, Warwick Castle is a great castle!

There are tons of Merlin goodies nearby Gloucestershire! Did you get to Goodrich Castle and the Maze?

The maze yes, but not Goodrich Castle - I might go there today!

It's been great, I've had even more of a Merlin-y week than I expected! Yay!

It's been lovely weather, actually, a little rain but mostly at night or early morning, and lots of sun. Brilliant stuff.

I'm in darkest Gloucestershire all this week with friends and their kids ... Yesterday I was at Puzzlewood, and today may be Clearwell Caves.

Woah, spooky - I could have written this exact thing, as we were in the Forest of Dean just the previous week, holidaying with old uni friends and their children! Though our trip contained less Merlin-location spotting, and more Who-location spotting - El and Fro spent most of the trip round Puzzlewood 'shooting' Weeping Angels (and Daleks and Cybermen for good measure) with superpowerful blasters that happened to look a lot like sticks...

I think that seems entirely fair! It's a quite varied filming location sight fairly near Cardiff so I am unsurprised they both use it!
