A romantic ruin and surrounding woodland, where the video for Bryan Adams’ hit theme song for the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, was filmed, is up for sale for £60,000.

The ballad, Everything I do, I Do It For You, topped the charts for 16 weeks in 1990.

Adams was filmed wandering the site at Silk Mills, Holford, in the Quantock Hills, in half-light as the sun’s rays pierced the beech canopy.

There is potential for restoration with planning permission and the stream is suitable for hydro generation.

The 1.33 acre site is offered for sale by the League Against Cruel Sports, which will, ironically, retain the sporting and fishing rights.

Richard Stagg of property agents, Seddons, said: “it is certainly the most unusual and interesting property that I have dealt with.”

The silk mills were established by Huguenot settlers and were most active in Napoleonic times.

Viewing by appointment with estate agency Seddons. Call 01884 824139.
