Last week's rumours of Poldark filming at Great Chalfield Manor near Bradford on Avon were realised today, when crew and cast arrived for three days of filming.

According to the Gazette and Herald filming will take place in the gardens and grounds of the manor as well as inside the house. One event being filmed is a party in the Great Hall.

As yet, it has not been revealed which house from Poldark novels Great Chalfield Manor stands in for but it may well be Killewarren, home of the Penvenen's.  Certainly Gabriella Wilde, who plays Caroline Penvenen, was spotted there today.

Filming has also have been taking place in the
nearby village of Neston, much to the delight of Sir James Fuller, owner of the Neston Estate.

Secretary of the Holt magazine said: “I have seen a lot of people come through here to the estate, hoping to catch a glimpse of any actors and occasionally you see the cast walking around in costume.”
