Last Tuesday, the village had a very unusual day – Sticklepath moved north of the border, becoming Gretna Green for the day. Finch Foundry had been selected to become the setting for a ‘simple’ wedding in a German production of Rosamund Pilcher’s ‘Happiness Unbridled’. The foundry was decorated with flowers and ivy and even had a kilted piper outside when it became that famous Scottish blacksmiths shop for the day.
The film will be shown on German Television over the Christmas period. We’re hoping to get a copy of it to find out how much of the foundry you actually get to see.
