Award-winning BBC One drama set in 18th Century Cornwall, starring Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson. Series one filmed for six months in 2014, with sets for key interiors built in Tank House 2 including The Red Lion pub and ‘Nampara’, Ross Poldark’s home.

The team returned in 2015 for series two’s seven month shoot, building additional sets and basing a full costume department on site, complete with sewing, dying and fitting rooms.

Series three filming began in September 2016, with Tank Houses 1 and 2 are used for set building and further space used for construction, prop workshops and the extensive costume department.

All three series’ location filming across Cornwall, Bristol and Wiltshire has been coordinated from the Studios’ production offices, with Bristol Film Office providing location support.
