Residents in Chipping Sodbury went mad when it was revealed that Poldark was being shot locally around the town.

The show used the Ridings Playing Fields as 'base camp' for its shooting in the area.

Fans lined the entrance and exit and were treated to some photographs from some of the cast members.

Nobody was able to grab photos with Poldark himself, Aidan Turner, but other cast members including Harry Richardson as Drake and Luke Norris as Dr Enys posed for snaps.

One resident revealed on Facebook: "The cast were lovely, they came over and spoke to us and even had some photos."
