The Long Way Home

Filming of the "Proof of Concept" for "The Long Way Home" at Park Hall Farm near Oswestry.
August 2016


In August 2016 I spent two days in the trenches at the Park Hall Farm Experience, just outside Oswestry, where I and two other members of Rich in History took part in the filming of a short Proof of Concept production. 

The film tells the story of the last few days of World War One, and is about the experiences of a Pals Battalion, made up of volunteers from the Stately Homes, villages and workforces from factories in Shropshire. As the war comes to an end Captain John Hemmingway must decide between following orders or protecting the men under his command.
