The alternative bell/bridge entry room from Series 1 and 2 of Knightmare.

Bell and Bridge

By Keith McDonald

This room was an alternative starting room in the first two series of Knightmare. Dungeoneers had to trigger a bridge to reach the exits.


This was a simple challenge in the very early stages of the quest during the first two series.

A large section would be missing from the middle of the room.

Dungeoneers had to stand on a symbol or ring a bell to summon a bridge. This allowed them to cross to the exits at the far side of the room.

A bridge puzzle, based on a handpainted scene by David Rowe, as shown on Series 1 of Knightmare (1987).

The final team of the first series begins the dungeon here rather than the traditional Door Option Room (which follows in the next chamber).

One team from the second series arrives here straight from the Wheel of Fortune. They waste no time and head for the bell on the very edge of the drop.

Not exactly difficult to surmount. First, use your eyes, then use your wits, then use your feet.
