Many of the marsh scenes are set on the Faversham Walk On The Wild Side route that is part of the routes ‘pack’ on the faversham.org website that I recall you liked. Joe Gargery’s forge is actually a discussed coastguard lookout station directly on the route; it was gussied up to look like a ramshackle Victorian house/workshop. My wife and I saw the film over the weekend and, as well as being a great version of the classic story, it certainly presents the local marshland in a gorgeous way. All the best Laurence Laurence Young Manager Faversham Enterprise Partnership Log in to Reply Christopher Somerville says: 11/01/2013 at 10:09 Thanks, Laurence – that is a very strange and atmospheric piece of marshland, very ‘Dickens’ altogether. Do you know the Ferry House Inn on the Isle of Sheppey? – You can see it just across the Swale Channel from the sea wall on this walk. A great place, packed with character. I stayed there a few years ago, the only guest in mid-winter, and found it EXTREMELY haunting and hair-raising! Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
