“Ripples, changing tides, heritage and myth, interweave into an abstract canvas”


Filmed and edited in Newbiggin by the Sea, Northumberland. A place (certainly when it was filmed in 2008) that if you get up early enough, you could catch a glimpse of the remaining Sea Coalers by horse and cart. Times have certainly changed.
