A car park in Dorchester town centre will close temporarily for a film production company.  

Dorset Council has announced the Wollaston Field car park in Dorchester will close for two days as the production company will use the car park as its base.

The car park, just off Charles Street, will shut today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday), with the council advising drivers to find an alternative car park.

A spokesperson from the council said: “Wollaston Field car park, Dorchester, will be closed to enable a film production company to use the car park as their base.”

“We can’t spill the beans as to what they’re filming, but please seek alternative parking if you are in Dorchester during that time,” they added.

Dorset has been a hive of activity in recent weeks, with filming taking place for other productions across the county. 

As reported, crews took to West Bexington beach earlier this month to film for Disney +. While the company remained tight-lipped about what was taking place, the Echo understands it could have been part of the production for a new 10-part drama titled Say Nothing, which is set to hit the streaming service next year.

The same week, crowds gathered in Lyme Regis to catch a glimpse of filming for Netflix recording of comedy-drama, Heartstopper.
