I looked back to when was the last time I posted a Scavenger Hunt and oddly it was almost exactly a year ago today that I last did one, Rhinocerouserous, which was from my birthday trip to the zoo. They really should be more than a yearly event as they are such fun to do so I am going to write a list of potential locations that I have not already done and see if I can finally get to 100 different locations.
However the best Scavenger Hunts are often the ones you are not expecting and this is definitely the case for this one. Last summer, July to be exact, I was out walking a path that i don’t use that often because the route is not really long enough, but I happened to be nearby and so thought I would do it anyway. Half way round as I was coming out of the wooded area I discovered this.
Really, a Roman encampment in the middle of Hertfordshire?
Once I got down the bottom of the hill I realised that it was actually a TV or movie set.
The place was pretty deserted but there was a security guard who was camped out in his car who told me it was a set for the TV show Britannia on Amazon Prime but that filming didn’t start until tomorrow. We chatted for a bit and then he went back to his car and stood around taking a few more picture.
Note the fake centurions on the lookout points. I genuinely thought they were real men when I saw them at a distance.
Of course I knew what I wanted to do but damn that security guard for being so friendly and parking right by the gate. But then I remember that when I first spotted the set I had not been able to see him and so I collected my stuff up and preceded back up the hill towards the woods until I found the perfect spot.
And in between dog walkers managed to snap a boobs out
And bum out picture and hopefully, as long as Jade allows it, not only get another Scavenger Hunt on my list but create a brand new location of TV/Movie Set on the Scavenger Hunt listings.
