There it was gone! As fast as the Essex serpent set was built it was gone! along with the stars of the drama Tom Hiddleston and Claire Danes, but here is a few images before it went.


Wasn’t there long at all!

It’s like it was never there! Maldon town become the setting for the new six part drama ‘the Essex serpent’, staring Tom Hiddleston and Claire Danes..

Last week a couple to big tents popped up, then a number of big trucks and what seemed like 100 set workers ! set to work to put together a Victorian setting with boats, ships and what looks like a Victorian dock. With all the trimmings..

I was keeping fingers crossed that filming would take longer than just a few days and that I would have the luck and pleasure of seeing the amazing cast a crew of the drama. But life got in the way ! And I couldn’t make it there to photograph Tom or Claire! In the midst of filming..

I was lucky to have got a number of set shots but the only time I could have got a shot of one of the stars the security guards got in the way so managed to get his nose haha! Not what I wanted !

Wish I could have managed to get some more chances .. would have been great to get some stars into the portfolio.. and give his fans something to look at!

Sadly I only managed to get set shots ! Like those you see above!

Just a week later I managed to get down to the quayside where filming was .. and there is was … gone! Not a dot of dust no lumps of coal or grains of salt! It was back to standard Maldon quayside!

As fast as it come, it was gone again!

Yet another lights down on filming and another film, filmed in Maldon .. .. it’s great that this little sea side town has been home to so many filming sets .. looking forward to the next one! Keep eyes open
