Fans of the classic CITV adventure gameshow Knightmare are attempting to identify the various filming locations used in the programme, for anyone who wishes to visit them. Information about the known locations can be found in the Knightmare Lexicon, and an interactive map has been created here.
There are still a handful of locations that we haven't been able to identify. If you recognise any of the following, please drop me an email!
This stained glass window appeared in a Level 3 room in Series 2 and 3 (1988–1989). The room was an illustration by artist David Rowe, but the window is believed to have been a real photograph. We have no idea where it was taken from. The Norfolk / Suffolk area is a possibility, as the show was made in Norwich. Have you seen this in your local church?
This tree was inhabited by Oakley in Series 5 (1991). Two Eyeshield sequences approaching and leaving the scene can be seen on YouTube at 14:48 and 18:54. Could it be Hockering Wood near Norwich?
This dragon flight sequence was used in the end credits of Series 5 episode 3 (1991), and can be seen on YouTube, starting at 7:25. Do you recognise this stretch of coast with its distinctive headland?
The coastal flight shown during the end credits of Series 6 episode 2 (1992) is also unidentified. Both are likely to be somewhere in South Wales.
I think the end credits of Series 6 episode 3 show Landimore Marsh on the north coast of the Gower Peninsula. I am also wondering if the first part of this dragon flight was filmed in the same area, taking off over the pine plantations of Whiteford Burrows towards North Hill Tor – can anyone confirm or deny this?
Dungeoneers were rowed across this mystery lake in Series 5 and 6 (1991–1992). A clip can be seen on YouTube from 19:35.
They were dropped off at a wooden jetty...
...and emerged onto a path between trees, where a portal was standing not far from a bench.
This galleon appeared in Series 6 (1992). It is not known whether it was a working ship or a museum.
An Eyeshield sequence filmed below deck can be seen on YouTube from 19:27.
Two dungeoneers in Series 6 (1992) walked along this forest path with a distinctive overhanging tree branch. A clip of the exit sequence can be seen on YouTube from 8:47.
Do let me know if you're familiar with any of the places shown above – many thanks!
