'Skyfall' production crew head to Elstead for filming

21-Jan-2012 • Skyfall

Members of the location crew for the 23rd James Bond film "Skyfall" have begun arriving at areas around Elstead (Surrey, England) in an operation worthy of secret storyline from the silver super spy himself, reports Godalming People

The giveaway was the location signs labeled '23', which have also been seen at all London filming locations for Daniel Craig's third outing as 007.

Security staff at the location between Thursley Road and Pitch Place were tight-lipped when quizzed by the paper about the large trucks arriving. "I don't know anything.....I think this is for Army use" said one security official.

Meanwhile, local press has seen members of the crew already out and about in Elstead last night, particularly the Woolpack pub.

Large swathes of Hankley and Elstead Commons is land owned by the Ministry of Defence for army exercises surround the town, which has been a favourite of filmmakers over the years. It was last used by EON Productions for part of the hovercraft chase in the 2002 outing "Die Another Day".

Thanks to `gandalfgrey` & `Germanlady` for the alerts.
