Hi all,
Continuing my series of Lost Crown/Barrow Hill related features, I am pleased to present a video of the locations that inspired Barrow Hill.
You can see the video by looking for The Investigative Author podcast on iTunes, or by heading to http://www.tomrbaynham.com/2010/09/01/video-episode-2-the-real-barrow-hill/
Please leave a comment here or on my blog if you enjoyed the video.
Cheers!

Thanks for all those images, AmunPtah. A lot of work there !! grin

I've visited many of the places in the past - although not all - when I've been on holiday in the area.

Cheers.

Really pretty area.
I liked the sheep jumping the fence 40 seconds in.

Thank you for the podcast of the images of Barrow Hill. That was fun and now I want to replay the game. I enjoyed seeing the actual place and will play again with those images in my mind.

Thats a excellent Video AmunPtah! I must visit those locations myself seeing as I'm only 18 miles away!

I love the Lost Crown photos too. I was half expecting Harbour cottage to actually be haunted when i visited it!

I love the pictures of Northfield Church and the Martello tower in Looe!

Thanks for your comments. Yep, Northfield/Duloe is pretty cool, especially as it has the stone circle, and is walking distance to Stocks Lane (the pathways). I envy you gruffy, as you can just nip across in a few minutes. Its a 3.5hr trip for me!

Yep that was a humorous surprise! I had no idea the sheep was there when I began filming. Sheep really could take over the world if they put their minds to it...

I'm glad that you want to play again. I do too! I can't wait for Bracken Tor and TLC2. Expect more videos and photosets when they drop.

Do it! Have you visited any of the sights from The Lost Crown? A quick tip is to look at the map when you view each set of my photos on Flickr. I have painstakingly placed each photo to the location where I took it, down to the nearest 10 metres or so. It should help you plan out where to go. If want any help or advice PM me and I'll let you know my email.

I have visited Polpero/Saxton and managed to find the net Hut too! I did see Harbour cottage for sale though. My Missus couldn't understand why I was so excited seeing the place!

I am going back again and to Looe as-well. I'd love to see the other places such as the lighthouse, Bobs workshop, and Karswell house.

Well done for finding the locations and i can't wait for Bracken Tor/ Last Crown locations too!
Hint hint! lol
All the best

Gareth

Thanks Gareth,

The lighthouse is on the coast path just east of Polperro, on the way to Talland Bay. The Karswell House is actually in Devon, just! Its at Morwhellam Quay, a few miles SW of Tavistock.

Bob's workshop is the last one I need for my collection. The exterior is the Teglios stores in The Warren, Polperro, but the interior is the one that I need. Jonathan said that the workshop is a mashup of the mill and cider press near Lanhydrock House, but I went all around the House and drove aimlessly around the nearby roads and couldn't find it :-( I'll have to ask him again.

Morwellham Quay? Ahh not far!
I might be able to find the workshop near Lanhydrock house as i know the area quite well!

We must organise a minibus tour of the locations as I'm sure there's many Gameboomers who'd love to see the Barrow Hill/ Lost crown places.

If you can find the workshop it would be fantastic!

Yep, the minibus idea is something I've been mulling over. I'd like to organise one. If any of you are interested in the idea, PM me and I'll put a list together to see if we have enough to hire the minibus.

I'd imagine it would likely happen sometime next spring, dependent on Jonathan & Matt's availability and access to the locations (Northfield/Duloe church had the builders in on my last trip!).

EDIT: I've looked at minibus prices. A 16 seater tour would cost around £15 per person, which is very good value for a full day of sightseeing! Let me know if you would like to receive more information.

EDIT2: I got another quote today and tickets would cost £12.
