Preparation for filming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has been taking place at Black Park, Buckinghamshire, recently. A report from the set states that it has taken five weeks to complete the Hogsmead station with primary filming to take place next week.
Once again the team of set designers and construction crew have done an incredible job building the complete and gorgeous Hogsmead station and platform in a matter of weeks. This large scale project right in the middle of the woods has been 5 weeks in the construction phase so far with an expected further week or so left until Unit 1 begin filming. During yesterday evening and continuing the rest of the week the actual carriages of the Express are being brought to the set, leaving then just (if you can call it just) the Engine to arrive by the weekend.
As you can see from the images the attention to detail of the station is amazing, the front being finished with a fully workable waiting room, even at the rear (we're not sure if this will feature on screen) has been finished to the highest standard...c'mon WB Executives, leave the Station here for 6 months so the fans can visit - we're sure you can sort out the legal issues?
