ITV Vera's new filming location 'rumbled' as crew spotted in Northumberland car park

Eagle eyed Vera fans have worked out the latest filming location for the new series of Vera, after crew and production vehicles were clocked in a Northumberland car park and locals invited them to call in for a pint.

Just a week on from the announcement that the much loved ITV drama will be coming to an end next year, the show's cast have been back in front of camera all over Tyneside and Northumberland over the last few days, having reunited for a script read through just hours after news broke on its future.

The first place Vera leading lady Brenda Blethyn and sidekick David Leon were seen was in Cambois, with the pair shooting a smaller scene, which saw Brenda standing near a caravan, before her Land Rover was then clocked by a few passers by near Blyth beach, as a stunt double caused confusion for one fan.

A clear indication of where the Vera team were headed on Thursday came by way of a road closure notice, with residents informed that the the C131 Shadfen Junction to Bothal Bridge would blosed between 7am and 9pm, to allow a safe space for the cast to film.

And the Vera crew were also seen somewhere else on Thursday too, with production vehicles snapped in the vicinity of the car park at Ashington Train Station. The shots were shared on X (Twitter) by the Ashington Cricket Club account, with the post reading: " We recently posted about the new signs at the train station and today there was a special guest. The ITV cameras filming Vera on our doorstep We’re open tomorrow if Brenda and the crew fancy a pint"

The final two episodes of Vera, set to be based on author Ann Cleeves' new book, The Dark Wives, are due to air on ITV in early 2025.
