The following comments were left on the Pebble Mill Facebook Page:

Sue Robinson: ‘I’ve got a newspaper cutting about this somewhere. We raised money for the RNLI, I think?’

Kevin Hudson: ‘The young lad behind Steve Mitchell is Brian Bishops son. I remember the day well, I was slightly off course landing, and was dragged through a pile of sheep sh…t. Oh happy days.’

Carol Churchill: ‘Steve and Brian scenic artists. I saw them all jump, lot of green faces that day.’

Susan Astle: ‘I watched them all too, with Carol, it was an amazing sight. Susie (Bancroft as was).’

These photos are from ‘All creatures Great and Small’ I think from around 1989.. first pic John Kenway on camera… bloke in white shirt is Mike Brayshaw director… Barrie Foster camera assistant… then Bob Farr design… John Cole sound.. electrican, I don’t name… Girl in sunglasses is Helen Mays costume.

A funny thing happened at this location, there was a tapping all the way through the take, there a big inquest were the the tapping was coming from 2 takes were ruined cos this constant tapping, sound man was going crazy. till it was discovered … it was a Thrush with a snail in its beak, tapping the snail on a stone, trying to break the snails shell. 2nd pic is Mike Brayshaw the Director.

(Murray Clarke (sound recordist) added the following comment about ‘All Creatures’:┬áMy first assignment as a freelance sound recordist was a fortnight’s filming on ACGS. I borrowed what was an awful amount of money (in those days) from the Bank to finance the purchase of a brand new Nagra 3 and a few microphones. It pissed down with rain for the whole of the two weeks and all the gear got very wet!! I was very upset!!!)
