"A Better Way"

Freedom to Glide

 

On Saturday 1 November 2014 I was at the Sir John Moore Foundation site in Appleby Magna, Leicestershire to take part in the filming of a video to accompany the track "A Better Way" - a part of the EP "Sick to Death" by the group Freedom to Glide.

The song tells the story of a young soldier who suffers from "shell shock" as a result of his experience in the trenches.

As a result he is tried and executed as a deserter.

 

The venue for the shoot was the Sir John Moore School Foundation building at Appleby Magna in Leicestershire.

Sir John Moore was a local entrepreneur who became Lord Mayor of London. He commissioned Christopher Wren to create a school for his local village.

It is a Grade 1 listed building.
