Teignmouth prepares for filming


Filming begins next week (June 1st) on the story of Donald Crowhurst. He sailed from Teignmouth in 1968 in his trimaran Teignmouth Electron on a single-handed round the world yacht race. The film stars Colin Firth and Rachel Weisz. The film company is making parts of the town look like it did in the 1960s, along with anchoring clinker-built boat(s) in the harbour.

Stainless steel made to look old, bricks made to look older, old-fashioned boats in the harbour
