Brean Down being transformed into huge Hollywood movie set

Brean Down is being transformed into a Hollywood movie set ahead of the filming of a big-budget blockbuster at the site on Monday, June 5th.

The cast and crew of The Golden Age, starring Cate Blanchett, are putting mock cannons and a huge film set in place on the top of the Down in readiness for the beginning of filming in the early part of the week.

The new movie will be a follow-up to the smash hit Elizabeth and, as we exclusively reported earlier, readers of Burnham-On-Sea.com have a chance to star in the film - click here for details.

Our photos show the huge operation going on to build the movie set on the top of Brean Down.

Huge tents and props were being craned into position on Saturday morning by the production team and a gang of contractors.

The unusual scenes were watched by crowds of onlookers.

Two large tents have also been erected near to the Brean Down Bird Garden, as pictured below, to house many of the production staff over the next few days.
