Helm's Deep set shot
The Dominion - January 10, 2000
BATTLE STATION: A fortress, believed to be a set for The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, takes shape in a quarry on Haywards Hill, near Lower Hutt.
The set, visible from State Highway 2, could be for scenes involving the battle at Helm's Deep. A miniature of the fortress has also been built for Peter Jackson's $360 million trilogy.
Filming is being spread among Welling, Queenstown, Waikato and other areas.
Producer Tim Sanders said he could not confirm details about sets and filming locations.
A multiple-crew setup allowed scenes to be shot in more then one place simultaneously. Filming was on schedule for completion by December.
