The story of a Land Girl in Lincolnshire in 1941

The film depicts wartime Lincolnshire and the experiences of ‘Ada’, who worked on a Lincolnshire coastal farm during World War Two. The 10 minute film is being made on behalf of the Lincolnshire Coastal Country Park project by Red Dog Film. It shows how London city girl Ada found the rural life and hard physical work a shock initially, but she gradually overcame her inexperience and grew to love her life as a land girl. The film is based on actual events – director Phil Stevens discovered the story in a book called ‘Lincolnshire Women at War'.
