According to article posted on Wednesday the filming 
has wrapped on 'The Aeronauts' starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones.

There were some news about the production since my last related post, but there weren't
any new photos of Eddie, so I waited for the posting. Here there are some pictures from
the filming locations and related news from the local magazines and social media.

Felicity and the supporting cast spotted in Waterloo shooting scenes on 9th August

 Scenes for a new drama starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones were filmed
in Waterloo on the first week in September as an elaborate set was built in
Whittlesey StreetRoupell Street and Windmill Walk. (source:

On the morning of Thursday, September 13th, the balloon could be seen in the skies near 
the Chase hotel, and was observed from all over Ross-on-Wye. At one point, a stuntman 
even climbed out of the basket, and a helicopter, with a camera attached, accompanied 
the air balloon to try and capture the scene. One family, who live near the Larruperz 
Centre, managed to gain close up access...Read more about Tilly's adventure here.

On Thursday morning (13th Sept.), the balloon had been seen over Strawberry Hill in Newent,
over Mitcheldean and in the air above Ross-on-Wye. The crew have been taking off to get
some aerial shots, but no actors have been here. Eye-witnesses reported the balloon dropping
ballast, indicating it is a gas balloon. Villagers were panicking as@thought it was in distress..
turns out it’s for a movie !!! Phew!! - Read more here - one more: getting ready on 14th Sept

Eddie was in London filming 'The Aeronauts', so sadly he could’t attend the activities promoting

Hot air balloons featuring in the film have been manufactured in Oswestry,
adding another link between Shropshire and the film’s storyline. In 1862, scientist
James Glaisher and pilot Henry Tracey Coxwell took off in Wolverhampton for a
mammoth flight, during which they are believed to have reached heights of up to
29,000ft, before landing in a field near Brown Clee Hill... Mr Lindstrand (founder
of Lindstrand Technologies) welcomed the two film stars when they came to visit
the company to see the balloon, and said they were pleased with the results...
