The BBC has a new video report online today from Freshwater Beach in Wales, where Shell Cottage is under construction for use in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In the video, you can see construction work underway for the location filming which is due to begin with the cast on Monday, May 11th. During the course of the interview, BBC speaks to locals about concerns of the construction and the impact on the gorgeous beach locale in Wales, and also gives a hint for the upcoming location filming of Russell Crow's Robin Hood, which will be filming in the same area a few months later. Be sure to check out our collection of photos of Shell Cottage under construction,  newest ones here, including of the platform and nearby area that will be the site where Dobby is laid to rest.

Thanks Wendy

They call it “The Weasley’s hideaway,” so I’m thinking all the Weasleys will be there, not just Bill and Fleur (if Fleur is in it). Which takes away Ron being ashamed of going home to the Burrow…which kind of ticks me off. :/

Anyway, it looks fantastic.

They are doing such a great job. I understand how the locals feel though. I would want some notice too.

That is so awesome. Totally the setting I imagined. Its going to be sooo sad. Even sadder to think we may not see it in the movie for another 2 years. Depending on the split. AHHHHHHHHH

Not really the setting I imagined from the book, esp Dobby’s place of rest (sob), but it will look cool, I’m sure, in the movie. I thought of it as being really high up on a cliff, not so close to the sea.

The cottage is looking better & BETTER with every new pic or video!! I have to wonder though…. they wouldn’t possibly imagine tearing down when they are done.. would they??

Do you think the “epic battle” will be when Bellatrix kills Dobby?? sniff sniff It would be very dramatic if Harry buries him on the beach! :’(
