Cerreg Cennen Castle, Wales

Today we visited one of the most photographed castles in Wales, Carreg Cennen. This fortress sits on a high limestone cliff, overlooking the area farms. It is an imposing spot for a castle.

While the crew was filming, I decided to take my torch (British speak for flashlight) down the dimly lit hall that led to a pitch-black dungeon. It was really erie to walk the hall alone in the dark. I will tell you that I only got down a few of the stairs that lead to the dungeon before I chickened out. I thought that I heard something. Perhaps a ghost from battles past.

I had to add this photo into this blog. There was this cat at the castle that hopped on Greg, our cinematographer’s, back. What a friendly castle cat!
