Berrow Beach has proved to be a popular spot for TV and film-makers


BERROW Beach is set to be shut this Wednesday, as the BBC films for one of its major TV dramas.

The scenes will be for a dream sequence on a deserted beach, so both the BBC and Sedgemoor District Council are urging people to avoid the southern end of the beach, and the beach car park, which will be closed.

Some of the scene will be filmed from a helicopter, while marshals will be in place on the beach and the nearby sand dunes to keep those areas clear.

It is not the first time the beach has been chosen by film and TV-makers, with a music video for pop band McFly and a chariot battle in ancient Egypt being just two of the sequences shot there in recent years.

Sedgemoor District Council’s property manager Tim Mander said: “It is clear that the BBC are attracted by the outstanding natural beauty of the location, its accessibility and the co-operation that the Council is able to offer.”

Filming is due to take place between 8am and 4pm.
