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.

Wellways

The Level 1 Wellway Room was used for the first three series of Knightmare.

Wellway rooms allowed dungeoneers to descend to the second and third levels in the early series of Knightmare.

Jericho

The Wall of Jericho, with the full room behind. Appears in Level 3 during the early series of Knightmare.

This complex room was sometimes obscured by a large wall in the foreground. Once beyond this, dungeoneers were able to summon Merlin.

Spear Room / Pendulum

The Corridor of Spears. Dungeoneers had to pass two sets of hazardous weapons. This variation is from Knightmare Series 3.

The Hall of Spears was a common timing challenge during the early series of Knightmare. Dungeoneers had to avoid spears to reach the exit.
