Rails had previously been laid and the museum exhibits moved out of the way into the car park onto them. So here is the Earl of Pembroke and the Irene moored up in readiness for filming to commence.
Buildings were being prepared by dressing them up to look ‘old’ and piles of props had been unloaded ready to be placed into position. When we returned by bus from our doctors appointment the whole place was buzzing with activity. The word had got round in the local press and via the boaters grape vine about the filming, and loads of people were turning up to photograph the preparations.
