Is this Dale? Can't Post

There is no way of confirming the authenticity of these images, but the poster identified them as film sets of the ruined Dale:

http://www.picvalley.net/v.php?p=u/2753/4560009397586051941337865592771KPlCqUcbErDCaZmgU.JPG


The rooftops of some of the buildings (red tile) also seem to coincide with earlier set pictures that were identified as Dale.

If so, they look rather nice to me...

What say you?
