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

Russell Crowe is going to play Robin Hood?? YES! Maybe, Alan Rickman can play the Sheriff of Nottingham in this new re-make. He played the sheriff in Kevin Costner’s Robin Hood and Rickman was the only reason to watch that movie.

If that little grassy area is going to be Dobby’s final resting place it looks quite appropriate, beautiful and peaceful, I’m nearly crying at the thought of that scene already!

I am impressed by the location they have chosen and the house that they have designed! Good work to the crew. I am looking forward to seeing their finished product a couple of years from now. ;)

It looks really good. I specially like the beach; I hope they take advantage of it. I can really see Ron apparating there from Malfoy Mannor and desperately trying to get Hermione safe.

I never imagined the Shell cottage to look this cool. I love the clam shells on the roof. :)
