New Game of Thrones set under construction in Co Antrim

A new Game of Thrones set is being built in Co Antrim.

The Larne Times reported that work is underway on the new set near to Magheramorne Quarry on the shores of Larne Lough.

Game of Thrones has used the Co Antrim coastline setting as a backdrop since it first aired in 2011 and filming has been taking place for the forthcoming sixth series.

It is not yet known what the new set will portray in the fantasy drama, however, the show's Wildling village of Hardmore and The Wall have been filmed in the quarry.

The Times reported that the set is a hive of activity with preparations well underway for filming and the quarry being painted white for The Wall's icy backdrop.

Since Game of Thrones set up around Larne, there has been an influx of productions in the area.

While causing a stir among the locals, the filming has not gone down well with all.

Last month, one man complained that filming of battle scenes for the Brad Pitt produced The Lost City of Z had ruffled a few feathers with his chickens distressed at the loud bangs going off close to his home.
