@MrSimonWood posted a few set pictures during his visit at the Marloes Sands. He provided descriptions with the pictures and provides an introduction about his visit as follows:
"For four days filming on Marloes Sands at the end of September 2011, a ramp is being constructed onto the beach and "headquarters" are being set up in the field to the east of Sandy Lane. I won't be here for the days of the filming, but I've taken some pictures of the preparations."
|Up the ramp |
Well, the ramp's not really there yet. Just a platform plus a few initial pieces of scaffolding.
|The ramp and the beach |
Low tide. At high tide there's no sand and very little beach.
|Down the ramp |
Show where the ramp will go.
|Junction onto Sandy Lane |
A new gateway onto Sandy Lane has been added at the bottom of the field the film crew will use.
|Facilities for the Movie |
Not sure what the giant marquee is for. But with 80 horses and hundreds of people, and probably only a couple of hours either side of high tide when there's enough sand there's probably a use for it...
|Gate for the Movie |
The lorry on the skyline is laying down decking that forms the road across the field.
|The Ramp |
With plywood sides and decking.
|Half ramp |
Scaffolding planks overlaid with plywood. There are apparently over 80 horses involved in the sequence to be filmed, but will they really make it down this ramp? It's smooth and steep, won't they slide down?
|Ramp stuff |
Material for the sides?
|Under the ramp 2 |
Looking towards Gateholm, but at half-tide, so there's no sand, and with the evening sun.
The road across the field runs from the road to Marloes down the the gate onto Sandy Lane.
Low tides will be around mid-day and midnight at the time of the filming. I'd assumed it's a day shoot. But there'll probably be folk onsite 24/7.
