Location, Location: A Marsh

We’ve been location scouting in Kent. It’s always important to find not only the right location but also the right people to work with. Fortunately we found both great people and great locations in this fabulous county. We always think time spent in pre -production is never wasted. Hope to be filming near St. Mary’s, Higham later in the year. The area is close to Charles Dickens’ former home at Gads Hill, and close to some great Kentish marshes, which feature in Great Expectations.

Hay There

Spotted these while location scouting on the Kentish marshes nr Higham and Cliffe. Dicken’s country. Hope to be filming here soon.


Coasting 

We’ve been on the Kentish coast filming this week, and were fortunate to spend some time in Broadstairs. Great town, and the sun was out. The town celebrates its links with the great Victorian writer and social campaigner, Charles Dickens. Of course these fabulous beach huts have nothing to do with that. But, hey, we all love a beach hut don’t we?
