Extras, dressed in 1940s outfits, were seen milling around next to St Mary’s Church, in High Road, while the set was organised.

The Recorder understands they are filming a ghost story in South Woodford for two days, involving a priest and the church.

A source said they couldn’t reveal who the lead actors are, but they are “well known”.

This isn’t the first time the area has been used as a set in TV shows and films.

Last year Tom Hardy came to the St Mary the Virgin Church, in Overton Drive, Wanstead.

A gaggle of fans waited outside to catch a glimps of the star of Batman and The Revenant film his BBC drama series Taboo.
