An early Pizza oven


Seriously though, it could be a mine entrance as well.

In the UK ?

In the UK, indeed for cooking but nothing edible.

Not a mine but needed one relatively close by

Yep, it's Rorke's Drift in KZN, it's bugger all like the film set. I spent a memorable day there.

Somewhat related, the South Wales Borderers Museum in Brecon is well worth a visit, they have a couple of the VCs won on display there.

I won???

WAG guess

doesn't look like the movie at all, almost all the movie shots looked up the hill, not down the hill.

OK another here's easy one. I didn't search out google (too lazy) this was one of my own pics

That's not surprising because the film was filmed over 100kms away
in another valley.

Reminds me of that lake that drained down a sink hole.

Yep N, it's certainly not in the shadow of the Drakensberg as one is lead to believe.

The foundations of the original buildings are still there as well as the graveyard where many of those killed were laid to rest. There's also a small museum, I believe that the curator (who was very accommodating) was murdered a few years ago.

There's a school on the site (or there was when I visited in '95)

A relatively easy place to defend for about 300 but there is a hill taking up the remaining arcs that would have been a nightmare to defend.

absolutely no ocean swell, no waves, no ripples on the water and no detritus washing up on the shore.
yet large enough for a sizeable ship.
that has got to be the end of a big lake.

lots of pine trees.
deciduous trees in the town turning red.

no traffic lights.
lots of boats moored around the shore.

is that somewhere in canada?

I'd agree with great lakes area but surely there would be a float plane somewhere in shot?
