Filmed on location at Castlerigg Hall caravan and camping park
As the last of the seasons guests were leaving the park and the end of another busy season drew to a close, Castlerigg was preparing for over 60 cast and film crew to descend on the park to commence filming for a new ITV drama.
Earlier in the week two caravans had been delivered and had been set up ready for filming on one of the touring caravan terraces.
As the cameras rolled the weather at the beginning of the week was perfect with blue skies and beautiful autumn colours. Starring in the ITV production were Rob James-Collier, Andrea Lowe and Alexander Armstrong who were busy filming for most of the week. To simulate night-time a 100 ft. lighting crane was positioned above the caravans bathing the park in light. From the other side of the lake it would appear to the casual observer that a UFO was hovering over the park, perhaps visiting the mysterious stone circle of Castlerigg! The three part programme was screened this March to mixed reviews however what was not in question was the spectacular Lake District scenery.
