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!

Hmm first thing i thought was Godric’s Hollow but I suppose it could also be the Tonk’s house – Godric’s Hollow is most likely tho I think.

I’m guessing Malfoy Manor.

It was too small for a manor and was definitely different house not just one.

Just remember, folks! Both ’Godrick’s Hollow’ and ’Spinner’s end’ were set, at night. A night film will look VERY different. Also, these are, most likely, not finished sets! This is gonna be so cool! I look forward to seeing the progression of the sets and the filming. [also, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t ’Spinner’s End’ in HPB?…where ‘Narcissa Malfoy’ asks ‘Snape’ to “save her son and make the Unbreakable Vow”? Just asking] It could also be “on the way” to Malfoy Manor?

I think it’s Godric’s Hollow as well. Tough to tell in the daylight though. I’m sure we’ll only see it as a night shot.

Definently not Spinners End. Maybe Godrics Hollow but that scene was at night and was quite late in the book – so would that be in part one? Perhaps it’s the Tonks street that would explain the Garden but that was also late evening/night. Arrrrrgh . . . . . . so many questions and no answers! I’m sooooo excited I’m practically wetting myself!!

That house looks a bit modern for Godric’s Hollow. Hmmm.
