Hi,
Been up there today and spoken to the guard, he says they will be offsite on the 14th Aug. (Camels looked unhappy)

Its Friday afternoon and I am right in the mood!

Movies like this are total rubbish, give me Seagal, Norris, Webb, or even any 'incarnation' of Bond.

Went for a wander round Dinorwic on Sunday and everything is back to normal, very little sign the filming took place at all.

Clash of the Titans gets its UK premier this evening, ahead of release this Friday.

A trio of pics from the trailers (viewable at this [web link])

All suggestions where the third pic is would be welcomed!

And one pic borrowed from the interweb, which shows a rather obvious incline!

Vanoord, I think the third picture is Castell y Gwynt on Glyder Fach,

http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/245043

but it may be Tryfan about 1K to the north east

Castell y Gwynt - see http://www.thewalkzone.co.uk/wales/walk_6/28902k.jpg for a similar photo but without the top of Glyder Fawr in the background obscured by cloud.

Cheers, folks! Thumb Up

I shall test Mrs.Vanoord with the photo later Wink


On a similar note, a lot of the references to the filming refer to "Harriet's Hole" - presumably this is this what we refer to as "Dali's Hole"?

I think `Sinc Harriet` might sound less eyebrow raising..... IP: 91.109.55.50

For some reason I find the 'Marching down the Incline of Doom' amusing.

It's truly hilarious, isn't it? Big Grin

It's a photo of a bunch of people in fancy dress walking down an incline. Almost enough to make me pay to got to the cinema and see the film, just so I can laugh!

C4 incline is the guess...

Pah! The original was ace. I hate these remakes using stupid CGI that doesnt even look real. They'll never beat stop motion animation. Bloody Titans, they arent even wearing Stenlights, they cant be that cool. IP: 90.203.50.151

I must admit that Titan is on the "to do" list, but it's a different sort of Titan to the one in the film... Confused

Ah Yes, but well worth it. My 1st enduring memory is looking down from P2 at my mate Matt hanging at the Event Horizon looking about. I thought "Man, he's a long way down", then I thought "He's a long way off the ground too." It dawned on me that those two facts meant I was a very long way up on a single rope!

My 2nd. enduring memory is just how long that final jug is. That shaft goes on forever, the pipes never seeming to get closer.

My 3rd enduring memory was waiting for Matt at the top. When he called up for a bit of a chat I didn't respond, he called again, once more I didn't respond. After a loud sigh, the words "The b*st*rds! They've all f***ed off back to Castleton!"
