Also known as the Mines of Gore, this location marked a return to a deep, dark Level 3 as seen in earlier series.
- Series | 6
- Level | 3
- Location | Poole's Cavern, Derbyshire
Our first glimpse of Gore came at the end of Series 6 Episode 2, when it formed the backdrop to Treguard's closing speech. It was later referred to by Lord Fear, who said that the the Sword was hidden deep in the caverns.
Team 5 made their way through the caverns on their quest for the Crown. Summoning Hordriss, they found him weakened by their proximity to Mount Fear. The team would later find dwarf tunnels leading back to Knightmare Castle: these were mines after all.
Gore was home to the Great Causeway, visited by Team 5 and Team 6.
The caverns were also close enough to the Rocks of Bruin for Elita to propose throwing a dragon caller off the rocks and into the caverns.
"Mines of Gore" sounds a little like "Mike Gore" who appeared in the credits of Series 5. Coincidence?
The Gore backdrops were also featured in Lords of the Game, the pilot episode made for America.
The real-world setting was Poole's Cavern, a natural limestone cave in the Peak District.
