The video is now entering the final production phase where the Meon Valley DVDs are manufactured so that it can start shipping before the end of October.
The timing is very appropriate as this Sunday (12th October) is St Wilfrid’s Feast Day which is celebrated in the Meon Valley where he founded many of the Churches. His base was at Titchfield Church which he built in 680AD and so is one of the oldest still in use in England.
The video features unique aerial shots from an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) that was flown up and down the Meon Valley over three days during the summer.
The video also contains shots from Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve and the South Downs National Park. Interior shots of all the Churches on the St Wilfrid Pilgrimage Trail and post-production occurred during August and September to create a 33 minute programme.
It also covers aspects of English heritage that the Saxons left us and information about one of the foremost thinkers and entrepreneurs of his generation as well as patron of William Shakespeare – the 3rd Earl of Southampton, Henry Wriothesley.
