The Battle of Waterloo came to shropshire recently when a re-enactment took place to celebrate 200 years since the battle.
About 800 people of all ages took part in the event which was held in the grounds of Millichope Hall, near Munslow in south Shropshire.
Lightsource Produtions captured the atmosphere of the day, using a multicamera setup, including a GoPro made sure that Lightsource didn't miss a thing and caught all the sights and sounds of the day.
Mr Frank Bury, a keen historian from Millichope Hall started formulating the idea about the re-enactment 18 months ago, and the idea gathered pace when he met someone who was able to provide canons. Frank amassed 8 cannons, some of them genuine Napoleonic era, supplied by Tony Watts an enthusiastic collector of antique armory & owner of Bapty film prop hire. The cannons discharged approximately 150 black powder charges during the approximately 1 hour sequence lending much drama and atmosphere. Not many participants will forget the resounding noise and sulphurous smells as they battled to capture the opponents flag!
A word on the video from Frank Bury: "The idea of the day was that it was meant to be full of pageantry, noise and fun, and I think the Lightsource team did a brilliant job in reflecting all of those elements in their excellent video."
