We arrived in Cuckfield at 9am, and were let into the post by Gordon Stewart who looks after the grounds for the Parish Council. He had very kindly cut back some of the grass and undergrowth so that the post’s compound was fairly clear, and that we could drive into the field. After a quick look round ourselves, to sort out the logistics of filming in the confines of a small dark room, we started shooting with Nick.
Then, after great efforts to keep him out, we let Steve into 50 Post for his first visit in 9 years. It all came flooding back to him, possibly because the post has been so well looked after it hasn’t changed much since he locked the hatch all those years ago.
