Neath Abbey

Location base at Neath Abbey for The Beast Below, 9th September 2009
Chuck Foster: Filming was at Neath Abbey today; the production base was set up across the road leading to the Abbey, and security were very strict on who could go down the road - much to the irritation of some of the dog walkers, not to mention us film-watchers! The grounds have a fence around them so you can't just walk around the place, and filming was hidden away out of sight of any gaps in walls of the ruined building. (Also, if you are on the dual carriageway that runs alongside, you could see the Abbey clearly, but not any filming itself - damn!)

As we had a restricted view, there wasn't an awful lot to see, apart from the production crew's seemingly random moving of vehicles at regular intervals, and cars and minibuses going to and fro, most of the time with few people to be seen inside other than the driver. Snipbits that came out from locals were that the crew would be there for a couple of days. The base was using a car park of a local business, and one of the ladies there said they couldn't see any filming from their second floor view of the abbey either!

Reports were that it was supporting cast there today, and that the main cast would be in attendence tomorrow (Thurs). We did see quite a few of the cast wandering backwards and forwards (between takes?), most seeming to be wearing robes of some sort, very monkish in look (ties in with the abbey filming?).

We left after it was mentioned that filming had wrapped for the morning and would resume around 2pm in the afternoon.
