Scenes for a new drama starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones were filmed in Waterloo last week as an elaborate set was built in Whittlesey Street, Roupell Street and Windmill Walk.
The film is based on the true story of balloon pilot Amelia Wren and scientist James Glaisher who, in 1862, embarked on an extraordinary journey to discover the secrets of the heavens.
In the process, they fly higher in an open balloon than anyone ever has – either before or since.
The set included period posters advertising a recreation of the Battle of Waterloo at nearby Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.
