Still busy filming around Liverpool and The Wirral , a place soon to be bustling for the Golf Open at Hoylake, the first image is at St Georges Hall in Liverpool a beautiful building showing how versatile the city is for filming and such great architecture
Also heard that Hadlow Road was used this is a restored railway station part of the old track forms a great walk called the Wirral Way
More and more production companies are heading here and if i can get any more information will let you know.

After Morse we got Foyle’s War now filming it’s 9th Season in Liverpool which stands in for London and on the Wirral where my wife and i caught with them in West Kirby our hometown, setting up camp in the car park near to Morrisons Car Park, caterers and props offloaded, we have a diverse location here Paul Bettany’s Blood was filmed here and on the Wirral some parts of Fast and The Furious 6 although i have to say a Morris 8 would not out run a Dodge Challenger but it has as much style.
Set in the turbulent era of the Cold War following on from the war it will be interesting to see the locations and how they are utilised , Hilbre Island is a big attraction so it is possible they would use this before the fracking starts.
Below are the first images i have captured and hopefully i might get some more as Acorn Productions progress with filming.
Austin Seven and Morris 8 no sign of Rileys or Bentleys did see what looked like Daniel Weyman in costume in a Chrysler Voyager
