Wartime film featuring Lincolnshire coast to start with a bang

A WARTIME film featuring many locations along the East Lindsey coast has finally come to life.

By the Winter Sea, featuring Ada, a land girl in coastal Lincolnshire during the Second World War, is being shown at Lincoln this week and in Huttoft and Anderby later this month.

The 15-minute film, costing £40,000, was shot entirely in Lincolnshire and includes scenes from the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway and Home Guard training at Anderby Creek.

Lincolnshire County Coun Eddy Poll said the film was a ‘beautiful snapshot of life on the Lincolnshire coast’ in the 1940s.

“It’s visually stunning, and a great showcase for the landscape of Lincolnshire,” he said.

By the Winter Sea is on at The Collection in Danes Terrace, Lincoln at 2pm every day until Sunday, May 6, as well as 3pm on Saturday, May 26 at Huttoft Village Hall, and 3pm on Sunday, July 15 at Anderby Village Hall.
