    Default The Wicker Man Churchyard and Chapel,Anworth Scotland.Aug08


    Easily recognizable to fans of the Edward Woodward and Christopher Lee cult movie,not the shite remake.I went on a trip to visit differant locations from the film and managed about ten of them but the others are building still in use so dont qualify for this site.Last pic is whats left of the stumps at Burrowhead.These where around 4ft tall a year back until someone sawed them down.

    Wooooo!!!! No Way!!! I am a Wickerman fanatic. I have seen that film 24 and a half times and know every single line of dialogue yet I have never been to where it was filmed even though I only live about 45 miles off the border. Awesome dude! I am buzzing at this!

    Fantastic stuff! That's one of my favourite films.
    I've got a couple of friends who live in the area and they sent me a pic of the legs before they were nicked.
    Love the remains of the chapel. :)

    Love this film. That dancing lass behind the bedroom wall was hot. :)

    I used to go out with a lass from Holy Island (Lindisfarne) and every time the tide covered the causeway I thought about this film....

    I don't think I'm in the same league as Britt Eklund somehow!

    The ass shots were'nt Britt, they were of a stripper. I regularly work with Lesley Mackie the actress who played Daisy and who sung the title song!
