We know that we live in a beautiful part of the UK but now a short film has been made promoting what this area has to offer.
Perfectly located, Berthon is situated right on the water’s edge in the picturesque Georgian market town of Lymington, just a stone’s throw from the Isle of Wight. We have fantastic road and rail links and can reach London in 90 minutes, and if you want a change of scenery then we are on the doorstep of the New Forest National Park which is full of hidden gems.
From sailing to shopping and countryside walks to cycling, the New Forest has so much to offer – there is something to suit everyone, including film makers!
New Forest District Council teamed up with Creative England and film critic Mark Kermode to produce a short film promoting the New Forest to prospective film makers. Titled “Through the Wardrobe” the film features an array of locations available in the New Forest including our very own Lymington.
Cllr Michael Harris, Portfolio Holder for Local Economic Development, said “Our film features breathtaking visuals and certainly showcases what this area has to offer. It captures the variety of possibilities and locations available in the New Forest beautifully.’’
What better timing for the film’s release is the arrival of production crew for ITV’s police drama -Unforgotten. 3 large lorries and numerous yellow cones have filled the high street outside the historic Angel and Blue Pig public house. The crew are here for a few days filming in various locations around Lymington, so keep your eyes peeled!
