Film Crew spotted at Mulgrave Estate
A number of enhancement projects that the Mulgrave Estate have undertaken have received attention from a film crew recently. The restoration of the traditional hedges at Kettleness were filmed with Runswick Bay providing the scenic backdrop. Our contractors are currently busy planting over 800m of new native hedgerow by the Cleveland Way up there and the whole story of landscape, history, benefit to wildlife and keeping alive traditional skills was told by staff, tenant farmer and contractor.
The crew then visited Dun Bogs, where the roadside drystone wall is being repaired and restored. The enormous task of rearranging the 700m line of stones into a stockproof barrier was both appreciated and understood by the crew as they filmed the repairs.
Both restoration schemes are being financially assisted by the North York Moors National Park Authority and Anglo American as part of the s106 environmental enhancement scheme for the Potash mine at Sneaton.
