    This was pretty, but please correct your next version of the book. Narnia was NOT filmed here. The battle scene was filmed at Flock Hill, 12km farther north on the 73. This was quite disappointing to find out after-the-fact.

      My apologies – your book said “near” here. I am curious though why you listed Castle Hill only with no mention of Flock Hill. Is Flock Hill just not as historical? No one rock-climbs here? Trails not so nice? It would have been nice to see only one place and get both the beauty of the rocks & Narnia in one stop 🙂
