Colin Firth and Julie Walters star in a classic children’s adaptation of The Secret Garden. The movie is based on a young orphan who stumbles across a hidden paradise on her uncle’s estate. From its original Edwardian setting, the big screen adaptation will move the setting forward to 1947, on the eve of partition in India and in the aftermath of the Second World War in Britain.
Filming in Bodnant Garden Estate in Conwy Valley, North Wales, the set faced a minor hiccup with a hose failure on one of the trailers carrying film equipment. Hydraquip Llandudno Junction’s engineer Lee Newton was called out to the set. “It was a fantastic opportunity to see the set first hand. It’s not every day you get called out to a film set.” With time being of the essence, Lee was able to replace the hose on the trailer with minimum downtime to ensure he could get the show back on the road! Lee manufactured and installed 1 hose, 3/8” bore size, 1.5m in length, BSP end connections, 2SC Rockmaster.
