Salvage Hunters & Chinese movie

You may remember that Salvage Hunters filmed here in January. The result now forms part of Episode 5 of the current series 12.

Other excitement?  This month, Belle Grove was used as a location for a 2 day shoot of scenes in a feature film for the Chinese equivalent of Netflix. As it is in Chinese we doubt we’ll ever see it but it would be nice if we could, as it used many iconic Suffolk locales such as Somerleyton, Blythburgh Church, Southwold Pier, Rendlesham Forest and so on. The house was crammed with 20 or so crew, making it very tricky to get ‘behind the scenes’ shots but here’s a few to give the flavour.

The Trail exists all through the year givng purpose to exploring the grounds. A clue guide  is provided and children stand to earn a special badge and fun-size chocolate dragon. However it isn’t that easy so younger children will require an adult companion.

Here are some examples:
