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!

Its something remote, out in the country. There are lots of villages that still have those old world Tudor-like cottages, especially in the West Country.

That would fit nicely with Godrics Hollow.

Godric’s Hollow? Luna’s house? Tonk’s parents? Bill and Fleur?

Luna’s house was quite distinctive in shape…like a rook wasn’t it?

Shell cottage was in a remote place…

Tonks parents? I got the impression (but could be wrong) that it was still in the city?

@Olivia: I think the Lovegood’s house would be a little more kooky looking that (at least, I hope!)

@StefanM94, we get to see some of the EPL games over here, but not a lot of them. I’m mostly familiar with ManU, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool. I guess they usually make up the top four in the league? I’m a HUGE fan of Steven Gerrard, so this season I’m rooting for Liverpool. But in the past, I’ve rooted for Arsenal (I like Cesc Fabegras a lot) and Chelsea (I like Frank Lampard & John Terry). I don’t root for ManU although Ronaldo is an amazing player. Winning just seems too easy for ManU. I prefer teams that are challenged.

Apologies for being so off-topic to everyone who is not StefanM94. I couldn’t write on his parchment or send him an owl.

I vote for Godric’s Hollow as the most likely option!

I think it could be Godric’s Hollow or Ted Tonks’s house. Hm. Anyway, nice pictures =]

I doubt it’s the Tonks Residence, as Harry will probably go straight to the Burrow after the motorcycle attack. (They have to streamline something, don’t they?) I would say Godric’s Hollow, maybe even Bathilda Bagshot’s.

Hmm…, this big building could either be the church at Godric’s Hollow or the Malfoy manor (?) I think there were other houses around the manor…
