A private film company are hiring St Mary's and Dove Cottage between 17th and 30th November to film a murder mystery called Confession. It is a small independent company. Great emphasis has been placed on adhering to COVID regulations and the company have a full-time COVID monitor. The church building will not be open to the public during this time, and services are suspended due to Government's lockdown rules. We will see vehicles parked outside the church and people coming and going between the church and Dove Cottage from quite early in the morning to well after dark. We understand the film company have been in touch with local residents to let them know what is happening and to apologise for any noise or inconvenience during this time. We are very excited to think our beautiful building will be used in this way and welcome the film crew and all involved.
