A TV crew has once again been spotted in West Bay.

A crew was spotted along the promenade filming a new series of The Big Steam Adventure.

The popular Channel 5 show follows Doctor Who’s Peter Davison, presenter John Sergeant and steam buff Paul ‘Piglet’ Middleton as they navigate their way around the country on steam powered transport.

Ray Sexton is a fan of the show and by chance was taking a trip down to West Bay from Poole when he came across the filming.

He said: “When passing through West Bay, I saw a steam lorry catch my eye driving down East Pier and being interested in everything steam I had to go and investigate and to my surprise there was a film crew there.

“After chatting to one of the crew. I found out that they were filming for Channel 5's new series of the big steam adventure featuring John Sergeant, Peter Davison and Paul Middleton aka Piglet.

“I was excited to see the three presenters of the show. Especially Piglet having watched the first series and other steam related programmes he has been in.”

The trio was seen with a red and green New Forest Cider Burley steam wagon filming on Thursday, October 19. 

The last series consisted of four-parts and saw the trio using different modes of steam-powered transport to get them from London to Scotland, including paddle boats, barges, steam cars, trains and tractor engines.

West Bay has featured on film and television shows plenty of times before, most notably in Broadchurch, with the beautiful East Cliff and beach making an appearance.

Just up the road in film crews have also been spotted in Lyme Regis recently, filming for Netflix drama Heartstopper, a show that follows teens Charlie and Nick as they discover that their unlikely friendship might be something more as they navigate school and young love.

Disney has also made a top secret visit to West Bexington beach this month to film what is believed to be part of the production for a new 10-part drama titled Say Nothing, which is set to hit the streaming service next year.

Say Nothing is based on a book by the same name written by Patrick Radden Keefe, detailing the life and death of Jean McConville, who was abducted and murdered by the IRA in 1972.
