Thanks to TLC reader Emma, we know that the city of Hunsbury, England will feature in overhead shots for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Emma pointed us to this article which says:

"The Warner Brothers team went up in a helicopter to film aerial footage of the residential area last Thursday.As reported by this newspaper they had posted letters to residents asking them to leave lights on and curtains open why the filming took place.It was on Tuesday night that the production company’s location department revealed what the filming was for. The news has delighted residents and the non-magical muggle folk who are now hoping to catch a glimpse of the Northampton skyline when the film is released.

The Mayor of Northampton, Cllr Michael Hill, who lives in East Hunsbury, received the letter to keep his lights on.He said: “To be honest, I completely forgot! I think it would be nice if Northampton is given credit for taking part, but it will mean very little if we are just part of an anonymous backdrop.“I think a few people will go along and try and see their houses.”

For the umpteenth time, they should’ve made it in the UK. But still, good luck to the ongoing construction! I can’t wait.

Very interesting…. It’s probably just an ariel shot of the city for the backdrop of a random scene.

Just an FYI – Hunsbury and Wootton are housing estates within the town of Northampton, not cities within their own right.

I live JUST on the very edge of Hunsbury – if only they’d looked just half a mile to the south on Google Maps!

Madam Hooch then showed them how to mount their brooms without sliding off the end, and walked up and down the rows correcting their grips. Harry and Ron were delighted when she told Malfoy he'd been doing it wrong for years.
