My barn was the film location for an episode of Survivors (1970’s BBC)

In 2010, I bought some land in a village near Monmouth. A few months after the purchase I was very excited to discover that the derelict stone barn in one of the fields had been the film location for an episode of the 1970’s Survivors programme. I have now restored the barn and have tried to recreate the original building, subject to planning constraints and the need to create a high quality building.

The barn in 2010. In the Survivors programme in the mid-1970’s, there was a caravan behind the barn. Shortly after the filming, I’m not sure of the actual year, a house was built behind the barn. There had originally been a small, old cottage which had been demolished.
