Castles for BBC4

Date Posted: 17/07/2014

I am in the middle of filming a new 3-part series on Castles for BBC4. Hooray! So far we have been to….Wallingford, Birkhamstead, Dover, Bodiam, Carisbrooke, Exeter, Lydford, Tintagel, Old Sarum, Kennilworth, Warwick, Threave, Caerlaverock and Stirling! I have made a sword, tried to shoot an arrow, fired flaming balls out of a 20-ton, 18 metre-high trebuchet, and, as this is basically a tour of National Trust and English Heritage properties, have eaten approximately 3000 scones. And there’s STILL two weeks to go.
