Ringer Spy Deepdelver sends in the word from the wingate set, looks like they’re shooting scenes for the exterior of Orthanc, Saruman’s stronghold. The report is short, so I left it here, highlight the space below to read.


This morning, as I passed in the train, there was activity at Wingate. They have flooded the set (as they did for the gates of Moria sequence) and what looks like a large wheel, driftwood logs, and other unrecognisable junk is lying in the water. Crew were working on the set, and lighting cranes were in position.
