By now everyone know that Skyfall has constructed a large building on MOD land on Hankley Common near Elstead in Surrey. The structure is rumoured to be a Monastery and that today helicopters were seen buzzing the area.

This afternoon they were rehearsing a helicopter sequence. There was a large military chopper which circled the manor house with a second helicopter with a camera on the front practising some shots, there was also some gunfire.

The place was quite busy with lots of security and Skyfall crew. I managed to chat with one of the locals who told me in confidence when filming will take place. There was also talk of the Aston Martin DB5 arriving at some point, to coincide with Bond arriving at the Manor. Ben Collins aka The Stig may be driving.
There are now 3 sets - the Manor house which looks like its almost finished, a chapel which was only a shell last weekend, and a stone entrance gateway to the Manor.
What is that insignia on the helicopter?
