As a follow now to the first photos TLC first brought you several days ago of Shell Cottage currently under construction for use in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, two new photos are now online. The public group for the Pembroke area of Wales on Flickr now has two new photos of the ongoing work, including one of a nearly completed roof of the cottage, made entirely of sea shells, here. UPDATE: Thanks to Chris and Pete for mailing in some wonderful new photos, taken yesterday at the location in Wales, which you can see here in our galleries.

Reminder: Location filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will take place on Freshwater Beach in Pembrokeshire National Park area of Wales May 11 through the 15th. TLC hopes to have a crew there to cover all the filming, however if you are in the area, please send in your reports, photos, and videos to

Thanks much to Flickr group Pembrokeshire and user tomix!

Well, I’m sorry to disagree with the majority but I think this building looks like something out of Disney World, impossibly twee. This monstrosity features in one of the saddest moments in DH in the middle of a war. I find the whole concept vulgar and inappropriate, and very out of keeping with the rest of the architectural concepts in the film series.

I LOVE it! I’m really impressed with the set design for these films. I think Shell Cottage will look fantastic on screen, just like the ministry and Umbridge’s office in OOTP. What great work!

Guess That Book

"You know how I think they choose people for the Gryffindor team? It's people they feel sorry for. See, there's Potter, who's got no parents, then there's the Weasleys, who've got no money -- you should be on the team, Longbottom, you've got no brains."
