Pimp Hall Park & Nature Reserve – a journey back through time

This is a short film I made about Pimp Hall Park and Nature Reserve at Friday Hill in Chingford.

Commissioned by Stow Film Lounge.

The film tells the story of the 16th Century Dovecote in Pimp Hall Nature Reserve, which is the surviving remnant of Pimp Hall Farm. We also explore the Nature Reserve and the wider Pimp Hall Park at the top of Friday Hill. Alan Butterworth from Friends of Pimp Hall Park, and local historian David Boote tell us about the history of the site and some of its secrets.

This film will be screened on Sunday 6th September as part of a programme of outdoor Cycle-In Cinema screenings at Pimp Hall Park by Stow Film Lounge.
