Re: Hammer house

Okay it's not on the scale of Blenheim Palace, but it's crammed full of fascinating rooms with many a curious nook and cranny or architectural feature. Hammer really only scratched the surface of the building's potential for Gothic horror scene setting.

Re:

It looks a slightly peculiar operation, and have seen a number of German and Swedish registered cars coming and going from the place on the occasions I have been there. Not sure what goes on there really... Nothing peculiar about it, we're a specialist insurance consultancy and management company a...

Re: What is the best episode?

Guardian of the Abyss is one of my favourites, if only because I used to sit and have lunch roughly where the human sacrifice scene took place!

Re: Name of hammer movie

You might possibly be thinking of 'The Monster Club' which was Amicus not Hammer. One of the characters is a ShadMock, which can kill or horribly disfigure with it's piercing whistling. (rubbish move, book's quite good though).

Re: What is the best episode?

I like all the episodes that use lots of interior shots of the house, but then I'm biased, I work there.

Especially me I bet, I worked there for ten years, and still make the occasional visit.

Fire away with the questions, it's been as quiet as erm.. a grave, around here lately.

Holiday on the Busses is a perfect example of comedy inadvertantly becoming documentary, it documents a whole era of British working class life that's gone forever. That's just what working class family holidays were like in the 1970s, they got it down to a tee.

If I get another wedding booking there, maybe I can come up with a cunning plan to sneak you all in! Hahaha... Well now, I wonder, If I asked the management very nicely if a site admin from here along with a photographer could do a not-for-profit photo shoot for this website? Seeing as the Hammer y...

Wow, what a cool job Andy! I bet you never grow tired of visiting that gorgeous building - it's stunning inside and out, isn't it! Certainly is, and since its a Grade I building, the interior you see in the episodes is exactly as it is in real life. yet again I have to give credit to Hampden Plc wh...

Nice work. Glad to see the scaffolding from the roof repairs is finally down. I'll try and get some decent exterior pics next time I'm working there. Not that I'm a photographer, I look after their computer systems.
