Filming has been taking place at a heritage site in Derbyshire ahead of anniversary celebrations.
The Derbyshire Historic Buildings Trust (DHBT) is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and filming has been taking place at Wingfield Station, near Alfreton, as part of preparations for a celebratory exhibition.
A spokesman for the trust said: “Earlier in the week we welcomed film maker, Gavin Repton, back to Wingfield Station.
“The purpose was for him to record some DHBT trustees – past and present – talking about their recollections of Deborah ‘Debbo’ Devonshire, the late Duchess of Devonshire, our former patron and Chair.
“The films will form part of our 50th anniversary celebrations this year – including our exhibition at The Carriage House, Chatsworth House in June.”
