Innkeeper passed this one along: “I was just paging through the ‘Upper Hutt Leader’, a local paper for my suburb, when I found an article on more filming, in another location.

“The article also shows a picture of steep bush with an ornately decorated tower, looking very much like one of Alan Lee’s paintings of Rivendell.”

Alan Lee's Painting of Rivendell‘Filming of Peter Jackson’s latest film – an adaption of JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings – has already taken place at two locations in or near Upper Hutt, and now it seems a third can be added to the list.


In the past few months, filming has taken place at Harcourt Park, and at the quarry at the bottom of Haywards Hill. Now, this stunning building (pictured) has cropped up at the waterworks area of Kaitoke Regional park. Last week construction appeared to still be happening, meaning filming could be in the very near future.


Jackson’s film company has remained very tight-lipped about its
activited, refusing to comment to the media on all occasions.’
