    Common Ground. 2010.    


    35 minute drama documentary about landworkers in Fenland at the turn of the last century. 
    Common Ground depicts scenes of Fen life in all its aspects .... harsh, funny, bleak,and above all ..... inspiring.
    Featuring a cast of local community members, many of whom had never acted before, Common Ground was shot on location at Wicken Fen, Burnt Chimney Drove and Littleport.

    It is also our tribute to those generations of Fenlanders who have lived and worked within this unique landscape. It is our homage to the men, women and children whose lives were bounded by the horizon of the field's edge, and whose stories are printed in the black soil of the Fens.


    Thank you to all our donors, funders and sponsors
