 Jane Austen adaptations filming in the South West

If you’re around the South-West of England over the Easter holidays, there’s a chance that you might happen across the film crews for two major forthcoming Jane Austen adaptations!

In the past couple of weeks, crews for Andrew Davies’ adaptation of Sanditon have been spotted filming in and around the seaside town of Clevedon. Austen penned her final novel in the last months of her life in 1817 and the filming suggests that the producers see Clevedon as the perfect place to pose as the fictitious seaside resort in which the novel is set.

Meanwhile, it’s heavily rumoured that production of the new adaptation of Emma, starring Bill Nighy, is about to start filming in the Cotswolds. A number of famous names have been added to the cast, including Rupert Graves, Callum Turner and Gemma Whelan, who stars as Yara Greyjoy in Game of Thrones.

If you spot any of these film crews, we’d love to see your photos!
