An historic and
thoroughly entertaining video
Back in 2002 a local independent film was produced in
Sawtry to commemorate the Queensí Golden Jubilee.
It was made with the generous help of over one
hundred villagers and by using old maps, photographs, computer
wizardry and local interviews, all mixed with shots in, around and
above the village it presented the history of an English village
from the earliest records to present time.
enjoyable, information-packed 45-minute production included a great
deal of interest; it explained why, for example, the Romans were
here, the origin of many a village road name and what Sawtry and the
Civil War had in common. The film also uncovered the history behind
countless local buildings, featured a 1900's pub tour, views from
the air by helicopter, showed graphically how Sawtry had developed
over the years and just what a sleepy place it was before "progress"
