First Look: Set for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Under Construction at Pinewood Studios

Hang on everyone, as we have a bit of a treat for you today! With filming now underway on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, today we have word of a set being built for using in HP7. TLC reader John was on a tour of Pinewood Studios in London, England, and was shown a set under construction to be used for the final Harry Potter film. As seen here in our image galleries, this special set is a row of houses, being built in a thick grove of trees and there is a pond nearby in the garden area of Pinewood studios. Readers will recall of course, that the bulk of filming for the Harry Potter films is normally done at Leavesden Studios, and as stated here on this paper, this is a set being built special over at Pinewood special for HP7. We do not know what scene this set is for (The Forest Scene, Godric's Hollow etc) as no details were provided to those on the tour.

Thanks ever so much John!

Awesome. It’s ridiculous how excited I am for DH when HBP isn’t even out yet.

Omg new stuff yay! My first thought was it is probably Godrics Hollow, but it looks more like it could be Spinners End from the photos… idk. This has cheered me up though :D

It is just ridiculous that we are being overloaded with information about the production of the seventh and eighth films when the sixth has not been released yet! Regardless of what the set is for, it still looks fantastic!

My first impression was Godric’s Hollow. It just seems to have the right look.

I’m thinking Godric’s Hollow? This is definitely quite exciting :)

Very intriguing – I’m thinking that it looks too clean for Spinner’s End (or is it just because that part of the book took place in the night and in the book it sounded like a not too pretty place?). On the other hand, the Godric’s Hollow chapter was also set at night, yes? Hmmm…..

Spinners End is a mill town setting, with rows and rows of terraced worker’s houses according to the book, nothing like this wooded setting. It might possibly be Godric’s Hollow.

I agree with Graymayne. My impression from the book is that Spinner’s End is on the “wrong side” of the tracks. Godric’s Hollow seems more likely to me too. One thing is certain – it’s not the burrow! LOL.

I’m betting it’s Godrics Hollow. The houses have that old village like look.
