Camera crews, cranes and heavy goods vehicles blockaded the iconic frontage of St Albans Cathedral while filming was underway for Netflix series The Crown.
A line of beautiful period vehicles pulled up outside the entrance to the building, flanked by a green screen, during last week’s location work.
The Herts Advertiser first reported rumours the show would be filming at the cathedral a couple of days before it took place.
The Crown, which stars Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II and Matt Smith as Prince Phillip, is currently filming its second season.
The production is based at Elstree Studios, where sets for the Royal Yacht, and the famous balcony of Buckingham Palace have been erected.
