Did you know…?

That the location fondly known as Three Bears Caves was also used in BBC’s Sherlock?

In Merlin we first see the caves in episode 2x04: Lancelot & Gunievere as the Tunnels of Andor, and they were also used later in series 4. Upon watching Sherlock episode 2x02: The Hounds of Baskerville, Julie and I were delighted to notice it was used as the location for Dewer’s Hollow.

The caves are located in Fforest Fawr in Wales, close to Castell Coch. They’re a little tricky to get to, but very impressive to look at by all accounts. You can find out more about them here!
