Popular BBC series such as ‘Casualty’, ‘Dr Who’, ‘Poldark’, ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’, and ‘Decline & Fall’, not to mention a wide variety of independent documentary makers and TV advertisers have all filmed on property within our management.
Associate Director Chris Hyde comments, “Notable productions include ‘Sherlock’, filmed at Morlais Castle near Merthyr Tydfil, and a large-scale battle scene for the Russell Crowe blockbuster ‘Robin Hood’ was filmed at Freshwater West beach, in Pembrokeshire. Recently scenes for a new psychological thriller, a joint production by the BBC and Netflix, were filmed on location in St Fagans where they transformed the estate’s workshop into a farmyard complete with prosthetic dead sheep!
“Granting filming rights can be a useful source of income for clients, but in doing so it is important that they do not inadvertently expose themselves to undue risks. We, as Land Agents, ensure that provisions for payment dates, time and location limits, post-filming reinstatement, and perhaps most importantly, insurance and indemnity assurances, are all formally documented in our filming licences.”
