ACT Location Walk, Fordwich, 31th August 2014
This year's PaPAS A Canterbury Tale film location walk will be held on Sunday, August 31 in Fordwich. Meet on Fordwich Quay at 1.30 pm or join us from 12.30 pm at the Fordwich Arms for refreshments. No need to book. Just turn up.
Note: Although we usually gather on what is the Sunday of the August bank holiday weekend we really gather on the last Sunday in August, the weekend when the film is set. These usually coincide but this is one of the occasions when the last Sunday is the last day of August and the bank holiday is actually on the previous weekend.
We will revisit Fordwich Town Hall, the inspiration for "Chillingbourne Town Hall," where "Alison" and "Bob Johnson" reported their encounter with the "glueman."
The Town Hall will be open from 1.45 - 4 pm (admission £2). We will visit the Court Room and see how it was re-created for the film.
We will also see St Mary's parish church (where Chillingbourne's parishioners were filmed arriving for matins), the entrance to the "Colpeper Institute", and other nearby places that represented Chillingbourne village.
Your guide will be Steve Crook of the Powell & Pressburger Appreciation Society.
