The brief was to celebrate a historical landmark somewhere in the country. This theme was used to think about those lesser loved landmarks and what they represent. An old factory might not have the grandeur of a stately home or the might of a castle. But its walls created employment, communities, skills, and pride for generations of working people. Crewe works once employed 20,000 of these craftsmen, and we wanted to embody that in the film.
