The Goods Shed, TetburyVideo Production
The Goods Shed, Tetbury
To provide drone footage of the Goods Shed, along with the surrounding town – showing the line of sight down the old railway sleepers which still lie marking the original branch line.
In 2019, the Trustees of the Tetbury Rail Lands Regeneration Trust were awarded a Grant on behalf of the National Lottery Heritage Fund. They wanted to produce a video which would be shown on the 130th anniversary of the first ever steam railway journey along the line.
Tetbury Goods Shed is a stunning Victorian building lying on the edge of the historic market town of Tetbury, famed for its antiques shops. The railway building has been recently renovated into a vibrant and lively arts centre for the town and surrounding villages and, although no trains have run from the town since the Beechings Cuts, the area is very much alive.
Featuring interviews with people who used, worked on and remember the railway line, station and the Goods Shed, the resulting Track Tales film is heartwarming, funny and a constant memory of life on the Tetbury Branch Line.
Integrator Drone Services was asked to provide drone footage of the Goods Shed, along with the surrounding town – showing the line of sight down the old railway sleepers which still lie marking the original branch line.
The site provided some interesting challenges in the planning stages with it being located in a restricted flight zone for High Grove House, but with the correct permissions obtained via the police, we were able to get some great footage on the day.
Julia Hasler, Trustee for the Tetbury Rail Lands Regeneration Trust told us:
“Including drone footage within our memories project video really helped to add another dimension to the film. No one on the Trust has ever seen the Goods Shed from the air, and it made for a very exciting viewing. But it also helps people who haven’t yet visited to get a better understand of where the Goods Shed is situated within the Rail Lands and the town of Tetbury. Bringing the project to life and giving new perspective. We’re incredibly pleased.”
