When Max and Lynn started to write the screenplay locations were very much in mind to ensure the story came to life in the period it was set.

Looking for the countryside and river locations took Max on a journey through the Wye Valley to Carmarthenshire, the Severn Estuary and Forest of Dean; to name a few. All had a history of salmon fishing and coracle making to bring those elements of the story to life.

Whilst the internal scenes of Hopkins cottage will be shot at the Dean Heritage Centre the wider external view of the cottage also needed to fall in to the period, where in Brockwier on the Welsh border, a little gem of a location was found under the protective arm of the Gwent Wildlife Trust.

More locations are still needed as the journey continues..
