You would best advised to contact the owners to gain permission first, as private property they may object to photography closed or not

You don't normally get any problems with using a camera at Ledenhall during the week, by the looks of shots on the web if the gates are shut you can shoot through them.

I took a look and from what I read here no permission needed.but proof of your intensions on you would be good idea as you are likely to be approached by security and don't want a confrontation, that's provided it's non commercial.


On the basis that you are filming with a small crew only (less than five people), keeping to public walkway, are using portable camera and equipment only and you will not cause any obstruction, danger or offence to others, then you are not obliged to submit an application. However it is deemed good practice to submit an application for all shoots and we advise you do so as we can then notify relevant parties such as the Police and Highways that you will be filming and in turn we can send you confirmation that we see no objection to your filming. This Notice of No Objection is useful to show to private security personnel and City Police Officers who may stop you to find out what you are doing. By submitting an application we are also able to advise you if any of the areas you wish to film at are private property, outside our borough or may conflict with another crew​.

You can walk through the market at any time - it is a covered market with access at all times. However, the shops will probably be closed at weekends. It depends what you want to shoot; if it's just the architecture, there should be no problem.

I think that you'll find it closed all day Saturday and Sunday, being as it's considered a part of the "Square Mile."
Also, I don't know what the rules re.photography in there are but I can recall a thread in which a member of Epz. had been asked to remove himself and his gear; he was using a tripod to get some shots, one day while it was open.
I can't remember when or who it was though.
Might be an idea to sound out the situation first.

I've shot in there with no problems, but only handheld and it was during the week.

It's open (shops closed) and you should have no problems. You'll likely need a tripod. I've never had a problem there and don't see why you should,

I just popped over & checked this out. There is no way for the place to be closed, so you can wander round all you like.
No problems with taking photos either - but the Christmas decorations are up, so as long as you are happy with them in your shot you should be fine.

It'll be a plus if the shops are closed, working close by in the week I've found it hard to get a shot that's not filled with passes by, and it was near impossible to find a quiet spot.
Perhaps i'll try an evening after work as the Christmas decs may light it up well.
