As a follow now to the first photos TLC first brought you several days ago of Shell Cottage currently under construction for use in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, two new photos are now online. The public group for the Pembroke area of Wales on Flickr now has two new photos of the ongoing work, including one of a nearly completed roof of the cottage, made entirely of sea shells, here. UPDATE: Thanks to Chris and Pete for mailing in some wonderful new photos, taken yesterday at the location in Wales, which you can see here in our galleries.

Reminder: Location filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will take place on Freshwater Beach in Pembrokeshire National Park area of Wales May 11 through the 15th. TLC hopes to have a crew there to cover all the filming, however if you are in the area, please send in your reports, photos, and videos to

Thanks much to Flickr group Pembrokeshire and user tomix!

How cool is this! That whole scene will be just fabulous with the juxtaposition of the tragedy set against such a beautiful setting. I’m crying already :(

I always pictured it as just one big shell. but bravo to the set crew that has to put on all those shells individually. yikes!

Looks like they’re getting really into details for DH. Good for WB.

That’s pretty adorable. I would live there.
I wonder what they will do with it when they’re all done.

That is so amazing! It’s odd to think that they are putting so much effort into a movie set that will only be used a few times.

Hey, that looks cool! Making the roof out of shells is a great idea! It’ll be great in DH.
