The Tide and the Town


 The Town and the Tide (13mins, 2013, dir. Samantha Harrie)

The TOWN AND THE TIDE is a film about the ever-changing connection between places and people, in the coastal town of Barrow-in-Furness. Once the Cooke’s High Class Furniture Store was the centre of a thriving industrial community. Now the building lies derelict, a shadow of its former glory, but as stories are recounted of the lives that were led within its walls, we are taken on a journey through the shadows of the town’s past and present.

A short film made as part of ‘Cooke’s Creative Heritage’ project a Heritage Lottery funded project which collected the oral histories of people from the Furness area.
