Filming for the next series of Poldark has been underway in the Duchy for the past few weeks with many sightings at Holywell Bay and Porthcurno. The filming was coming to an end down at Botallack Mine so we went along to see the action for ourselves.
The brilliant sunshine was really showing off to the cameras with a great back drop across West Cornwall. The set had been created around the engine house with extra huts and machinery added for the affect. The horses were in places and the crew all on lunch as we arrived.
Waiting patiently we enjoyed this beautiful stretch of coastline with its rugged cliffs and dramatic scenery. You can see many chimneys and old mining buildings around the area with a rich mining history seen throughout West Cornwall.
We chatted to some of the people on the inside who informed us that Ross Poldark himself had left for the day but Poldark’s Demelza was very much involved in the afternoons filming.
There was lots of action happening around set with Poldark’s Demelza seen reading through her lines between scenes and the mine workers coming and going around the engine house.
There were a lot of people on the Botallack coastal path taking in the warm September sun. The filming security team were really helpful allowing you to pass the section where filming was happening between takes, and showing you the best places to stand to watch the action, albeit from quite a distance.
People were going to any lengths to spot the main players…
