Peaky Blinders - Series 2 | Behind the scenes photos

The series doesn’t start for nearly two weeks, but fans can take a sneaky peek behind the scenes of the filming of Peaky Blinders with these pictures.
The shooting of series two began back in March at the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley.
Although the BBC2 series is firmly set in Birmingham, with the Shelby family living in Small Heath and ruthlessly controlling the Peaky Blinders gang in 1922, none of the filming took place in the city.
The closest was the museum, which played host to the film crew and star Cillian Murphy, who plays gang leader Tommy Shelby, for just three days.
They used the canal and barges and dressed the rolling mill with iron work, statues, bales of hay and horses.
Fake smoke bellowed out of a machine to add to the brooding atmosphere. (+)


As Peaky Blinders returns on Thursday 2 October, get reacquainted with the Shelby family in a two-minute recap of series one.  (X)
