New Set News: Central Otago, Ida Valley?

October 4, 2000 at 10:48 am by xoanon  - 

Ringer Spy DocDanz sends in the latest word on a possible new set on the South Island, with a promise to get more news later!

Just a quick note to say that I saw an interesting article in the “Central Otago Mirror”. Apparently a Lord of the Rings set is being built near the Poolburn Dam in the Ida Valley – a beautiful and remote valley in Central Otago. There was a picture of construction but litte else. I passed through the area in January and it is quite spectacular – a dry, wide, open valley with mainly sheep farming and a river with willow trees alongside. The Poolburn Gorge is particularly spectacular but I don’t think that this is where they are filming. I hope to check it out in the weekend so watch this space.
