During my walk along Hadrian’s Wall, I discovered the tree that was used in the filming of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves with Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman.
Remember this scene?
I am not sure though why Robin Hood is at the Hadrian’s Wall in Northern England on his way back from Jerusalem via Dover to Nottingham. That sounds like quite a detour to me.
Well, since this is the only flaw of a movie without errors, I would think, this has some meaning. :D Maybe, everyone, coming home from battle, has to pay tributes to this tree .. or climb hadrian’s wall?
Oh come on, you couldn’t find a better version of this old tale than the Costner one? Fer cryin’ out loud, I’d take a shot from “Robin Hood: Men In Tights” ANY day over Kevin’s hilariously poor attempts at a British accent!
What a great photo. I always wondered why they chose that tree though as it is a 300 mile round trip from Sherwood Forest. There must be other walls in Southern England with beautiful trees overhanging them.
Is that the same location in which Morgan Freeman sits in The Shawshank Redemption at the end of the movie?
That’s a different one:
