Additional Notes:

»

The passageway from the Witches Parlour to the Cathedral Cave is now partially split, as a new tunnel was made to connect the two, passing through further caverns that weren't accessible at the time of filming Revenge of the Cybermen. The old route now houses the Wookey Hole cheeses!
