Ringer Spy Andre and his better half Nicky report on the scenes that took place at Fernside Lodge (original story).

We are staying at Fernside Lodge this weekend. We’ve been talking to the Proprietor about the LOTR filming that they had here two weeks back. Apparently Sean Bean (Boromir) and Cate Blanchett (Galadriel) were both here filming, and the total crew numbered about 200. They filmed here for a total of 4 days. Fernside has these amazing grounds with various water features. One of them, a large lake, was used to film scenes involving a river. A large tree was built next to the lake, and root structures were created to look like canals that canoes moored in.
