King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table (2016) Safehouse Pictures
Starring: Charlie Hunnam, Katie McGrath
The forthcoming film King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable has recently been filmed in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. King Arthur’s cave as seen in the film was filmed at the prehistoric cave standing in the shadow of Great Doward. Protected sorbus trees hang over the cave entrance. The cave is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and it rises about twenty five feet high and its entrance is large enough for a man on horseback to ridden in and out of.
Between Biblins and Monmouth, on the pathway along the riverside, is undulating ground within the trees, behind which looms a massive wall of carboniferous limestone rock. This setting is used in King Arthur for a council scene. Hart’s-tongue fern prettifies the slightly stark scene.
