has made impressive progress on the set created out at Wolf Hill Quarry in Northern Ireland. We first heard that the quarry was being used as a snowy season 7 location
back in early November, and by mid-month we received exclusive photos confirming the new site. Today, phantom pilot uploaded a new video on YouTube, showing drone footage of the shooting location as it currently looks, and as you can see, the quarry is an icy and active set.
Thanks to WotW reader Sebaciel for bringing the video to our attention!
We’ve heard major spoilers about the scenes being filmed at the quarry, but with such an isolated site, located off a gated road, it’s difficult for anyone to get close to confirm anything. The spoilers indicated that filming is happening at the moment, and the video shows multiple people scurrying around the quarry. The previous photos showed more clearly that the site resembles an iced-over lake with a small raised bit of land in the middle- not quite an island, but almost.
Enjoy the video, and see for yourselves how the location has taken shape!

Green screen supposed to backfill the giant icy mountain palace of the Night King I’m guessing. Main focal point is the rock formation center with the path leading up to it. I can’t really tell what is going on with the left side. Looks like another rock formation there so could be part of the same scene or used for different area in the Land of Always Winter. It appears to be a huge set and cold as hell with all the fake snow.
So cool people are so dedicated to bringing everyone hints to the new season.
I can’t help but wonder why they have to wait to until Jan/Feb in Iceland to film though, if they seem to be having a big snowy scene in NI quarry. Perhaps they need lot’s of actual Ice.
The dark grey ones I believe is a stone path that leads to the center of the set. There is another group of those dark grey stones in the upper left corner in a pile. The smaller ones that are light grey, I believe are just for texture and depth for filming across a large distance. These are my guesses maybe someone can enlighten me as well since I have no idea.
It’s interesting that the green screen ha been installed on both sides of “the wall”. Maybe “the wall” will indeed be the Wall and someone will be climbing over the Wall retreating in haste or something? Anyway, it just looks like they will be using the green screen on both sides of the wall, though the landscape has been prepared for filming only on one of them. Maybe, it will be the area right outside the Wall?
I think it’s a combination of wanting Iceland’s natural scenery and the fact that January/February will give them more daylight hours to work with. They’re looking at about four hours per day if they head over there during the second half of December.
The reasoning behind Deep Lake on the Viewer’s Guide “Map” is finally revealed!! LOL
