MORE pictures have emerged from the Rossendale set of hit TV series the Peaky Blinders, as East Lancashire looks to welcome members of the cast for filming.

A traditional gypsy camp complete with wagons and other vehicles appears to have been set up in Lee Quarry, where filming is expected to start in the coming days.

Others have reported seeing an old graveyard being built in the area, with headstones and crosses hinting that cast and crews may be filming some emotional scenes in the area following a death.

Other pictures show cast trailers arriving to the borough with names of the show’s stars on the doors.

Locals have commented on the tight security in and around the quarry, with roads and pathed blocked off to stop the public from accessing the set.

One person said: “Security is tight and at every entrance to the quarry.”

On Monday, the Lancashire Telegraph reported how crews had arrived at the site, setting up tent and marquees for equipment.

It comes after Cillian Murphy, who plays the show’s main character Thomas Shelby, was pictured in Bolton last week as filming for the eagerly anticipated series six continued.

Peaky Blinders is one of the BBC’s most successful dramas and has become cult viewing since it began in 2013.

Jayne Turner was out walking in Bacup on Good Friday when she came across several tents and equipment in the picturesque corner of Lancashire.

She said: “We can see Lee Quarry from our bedroom windows and had noticed lights up there at night.

“My son heard they were filming Peaky Blinders. We often walk up to Lee Quarry so on Good Friday we went up and there was a barrier across the path and a Security Guard on duty. We were allowed to walk through but asked not to ‘go near the sets.’

“At the moment they are only setting up ready for filming so there were no cameras or actors around.

“The views are absolutely spectacular up there and the Quarry itself will make a stunning backdrop.”
