As announced in the Newsletter of December 2015, our wood had a visit from a group of students in Filmmaking, at Kingston University. They were led by Jade Lederer who was directing an adaptation of "The Wonderful Musician", a Grimm's fairytale, as part of her assessed coursework. We gave her and her art director a tour of the wood looking for suitable locations and after they had cleared everything with the Council they came to film on 9 and 11 of November. 

The weather was kind to them on both days and I saw them shooting by one of our significant landmarks at the junction of Bluebell Grove and The Wend.

In June 2016 the film was made available online and can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6vSoP6zgm8

SELSDON WOODS by Roy Topp

Where the silver birches rise,
Timbered arches touch the skies,
Through the verdant, rustling tiles,
Sunlight filters to the aisles,
Down along the mossy way,
Touching every primrose spray.

Behold the carpet, Cobalt blue,
Shimmering in the morning dew,
Rippling in the eastern breeze,
Bluebells thick between the trees.
No architect, however fine,
Could build cathedrals on this line.

Listen, hear the choir sing,
The skylark's solo on the wing,
The psalm of blackbird, wren and jay,
The rook to sing 'Amen' and pray.
His brother crow will soon protest,
When preaching from his lofty nest.

Up here in sheltering elm and oak,
Surrounded by an emerald cloak,
High above the bustling town,
Away from anguish, glare and frown,
In sanctuary of the wild,
God and man are reconciled.


Many thanks to Roy Topp for permission to publish his poem here.
