In the many years since The Prisoner first aired in 1967 there has never been a practical walking guide to Prisoner sites in Portmeirion. So, when Roger Goodman, one of the founding grandparents of what is now Six Of One, The Prisoner Appreciation Society, asked if I wanted to do the text to his long-contemplated idea, a Prisoner trail in Portmeirion, I agreed in a heartbeat.
Listen to just about any conversation visitors are having around Portmeirion Village and you are likely to hear someone mention The Prisoner. Often the person is looking to confirm where a particular action took place: Is this where the Prisoner lived? Is this where they had the chess match? Or looking for a particular place: How do I get to the Stone Boat? Since it would be impractical to signpost Portmeirion with the answers to these questions, the best thing to do is have a portable guide and map dedicated to the locations in Portmeirion that are scenes of action in The Prisoner.
