Phil has directed a new film shot at various locations in Lincolnshire.
By the Winter Sea is a Red Dog Film production and is based on letters taken from a book called Lincolnshire Women at War. It’s the story of a Ada, a World War II Land Girl who moved from London to work on a farm in Anderby Creek, near Skegness.
The film has been made on behalf of Lincolnshire’s Coastal Country Park project to promote local history.
Phil discovered the book, which is a compilation of letters written by women who came from all over the country to work the land during WWII.
“The letters give a snapshot of life in the county and the experiences of the women who worked here. The film shows what rural life was like for city girls during the war and involves Ada overcoming her inexperience to go on to really enjoy her new life.”
