One of the clearings from Wolfglade, a settlement from Level 1 of Series 5 in Knightmare.

Wolfglade

By Keith McDonald

Wolfglade was a forest area that teams encountered in the early stages of the quest during Series 5.


On entering Wolfglade, Eye Shield footage led teams down forest trails towards a clearing.

One location contained a shack with an elf portal. Another was the foot of an uphill path. Both were used for clues or for encounters with characters such as Brother Mace.

The area was patrolled by wolves. Teams would hear howls during Eye Shield footage leading away from the forest. Teams were also chased by assassins.

On the borders of the forest lay the village of Wolfenden. Teams might also progress to the Lake or the Greenwood.

Wolfglade, for reasons that will become all too painfully obvious if you should happen to linger in it.

The scenes for Wolfglade are based on the Weald and Downland Living Museum in West Sussex, including the Museum's woodyard and kiln.
