    No, it's not a film set but a real recreation of an Iron Age Village, last open in 2007, although has been used for a few events since then. It's not far from another public attraction. It's completely hidden, I found it by accident when looking on Google Earth at the other place. There is also some derelict portable classroom near the site, which are not very interesting so no pics. Also there is yet another plan to try and reopen the place this summer!

    There's a place very similar to this near to where I live, but it's also very live - with schoolkids, tourists and others visiting practically every day of the week. Nice one.
    No signature due to chronic lack of imagination, creativity and wit.

    This looks rather like the one that they built for one of those living history experiments, where they got a bunch of people with nothing else to do for a few months to live in the iron age and recorded how they got on. I think it was something to do with the open university / BBC in the ninties.
    It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down

    This looks like one I visited when I was a child - was it near the sea? Although I suppose they all look the same!!

    Very odd place, bet you could get some great night shots there though with the proper lighting. Thanks for posting.
