The challenge presented by this production was to re-create the village of Nottingham as it might have looked in medieval times. At the country estate location we grew crops from seed, simulating the authentic medieval village strip farming system.  Filming took place in summer when we had fully cultivated the corn, barley and hemp. Afterwards we harvested the crops so that later scenes could show the villagers tending the land and gathering up the hay. The stream was also built entirely from scratch, using machinery to dig out the route prior to lining and filling with water. For the orchard we transported ancient fruit trees from Kent and replanted at the location, dressing them with artificial blossom.
