Great Fire of London being filmed locally

FILMING is taking place in Henley for a new ITV drama about the Great Fire of London.

A set has been built at Highlands Farm, a light industrial estate off Greys Road.

This week, smoke was seen coming from the area and drifting across nearby Gillotts Field.

The four-part drama, called The Great Fire, will feature stars including Andrew Buchan, Rose Leslie, Charles Dance, Jack Huston and Daniel Mays.

Written by ITN’s political editor Tom Bradby, it tells the story of baker Thomas Farriner and his fabled involvement in the Great Fire of London of 1666.

It is based on historical knowledge with fictional storylines interwoven.
