Sherborne is now Casterbridge

Patricia Spencer describes the temporary transformation of the SDFHS centre.

Arriving this morning for a meeting at our Sherborne Centre we found that the exterior of our building had been transformed into ‘The Friends’ Alms-House’ as it will appear in the new version of Hardy’s Far from the Madding Crowd which is being filmed in Sherborne this week.

Our next-door neighbours, Sherborne Museum, have also had a make-over.

Another view of the Museum with an added sign for the film – our Centre is just beyond the arch (which is genuine!).

There is a news report about the filming in Sherborne here on the BBC website.
