Dangerous Exile - Probably the castle.

dangex005. Probably the castle.

dangex005n. Yes, it is. From inside the inner courtyard looking out (west). Not perfect as we should have stood further back but nice to see the match on the shadow. Lionel and Cynthia Sear with perfect timing for their visit to Caerhays. (I prefer the roses to the shed! SJ)

Dangerous Exile - Very castle-ish.

Dangerous Exile - O'Sullivan and Lee in the castle grounds. For comparison to the now, there is real wall above the protagonists' heads.

dangex007n. There is nowhere else within the property boundary that has the required flat grass with a walled background and it is at the east of the house looking east. The 'ruins' in the still look new and artificial IMHO. Lionel & Cynthia

Dangerous Exile - Jourdan looks over the grounds of the castle.

dangex008. Jourdan looks over the grounds of the castle.

dangex008n. This is an interesting one. This is a window at the south of the property near the south east corner. Note that it is a window and not a door as inferred in the still. The sloping topped wall may be original but it is not there now. The wall in front of Louis Jourdain was temporary we imagine. Lionel and Cynthia with our thanks for great sleuthing.
