As Oscar Wilde has dominated recent posts it’s back to nature this week!

Sunday, 3rd June was the perfect day to catch up with The Arthur Ransome Experience!

Barbon Fell is a delightful place for this!   It offers a true taste of pastoral England untouched by time!

It awakened a nostalgia for childhood and memories of placing stones across the water to create a pathway over the stream!  I must have been about five years old at the time!

The Walkers and Blackett’s would love it!

Here are slides of a truly wonderful day and a magical landscape for you to enjoy!

Poet requires:

Two people (18+) to play the parts of  lovers in a pastoral setting for a short film.
TextWilde’s Garden of Eros as Voice-Over.
The proposed film will have movement with room for a few dance moves.
Costume will have Victorian period and Wildean pre-Raphaelite suggestion.
A favoured location is the Silverdale area of Lancashire an area Arthur Ransome would have loved and an area of great beauty, also a bird lover’s paradise.
Filming will take place in the early morning.
Refreshments will be available.
As Mr Rupert Everett’s film The Happy Prince is about to be released it would be wonderful to have a film for you which evokes the true magic of Wilde the poet.
For now, hopefully the slides above will evoke the true magic of an English garden in summer and the beauty of wild Lancashire.
Enjoy.
