Gadespring in Film

Earlier in the year, the Box Moor Trust approached the Hemel Hempstead Movie Makers regarding the possibility of filming some short video clips detailing the history of the Gadespring Cressbeds, as well as working life during the height of the cress growing industry, as well as the work the Box Moor Trust have carried out at the site since acquiring it in 2011.

All three videos can be viewed in the playlist below. The first movie details the history of the Gadespring and the work that the Trust has carried out – work which would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the Volunteers, who have really taken ownership of the site. The second and third films meanwhile are interviews with Hubert Mills, the former owner of the Gadespring Cressbeds, who talks about the sites history and his experiences there.
