An extra long weekend … so extra long video this time I initially went to shoot the Manor House at Castle Combe, but then saw the village and though “wow!”. The more I researched, the more I found how much stuff the village has to offer.
My most complex video yet, but I had a lot of fun making it.
If you do enjoy the video, feel free to like it, and if you haven’t already subbed to the channel and want to see more, a sub would be amazing
Cheers folks - hope you have a great long weekend
Today, I head out to England’s “prettiest village” in the south of the Cotswolds, Castle Combe . Not only is it pretty, but there is so much to see and do . In this video I cover all of the sights that this quintisentially English village has to offer … including the village itself, the Roman villa, the Roman bridge, the church, the Manor House, the castle and the race circuit
Cheers Mark. I do enjoy researching places. Although some places, like this one, can open up a can of worms - as suddenly, there’s not just one place to research, but half a dozen Castle Combe is certainly pretty - but it has a shed load of super cool history that doesn’t see the light of day
Thanks, Clive. Appreciated! I am having fun trying to learn new stuff each video. But have a long way to go yet. I always spot mistakes after hitting the ‘publish’ button
Not sure what folk think about the ‘reconstruction’ 3D modelling scenes. But I really do enjoy that bit. Not saying it’s Pixar … but personally, I want to see “how it may have looked then”. Maybe it’s just me
I use Google, as all my pins are saved in there. 95% of the time, I have the satellite layer enabled, as it is easier to see things in the vacinity. But I have recently signed up with OS maps for the reason you stated. Definitely better at walking/bike routes. And their 3D terrain is miles ahead.
The ebike is great. Should have done it years ago. Did about 10 miles last night, and helped loads with the next vid already. And no knee pain!
All good news.
Not sure if you can plot your route as you go with O.S.
As you scambled through the undergrowth I thought a plot of course when back home would be good.
You are more techy than me.
I think the rebuilds are brilliant and it really gives an idea of what it could have looked like.
