There are three films that I can watch over and over again. There’s ‘Gone With The Wind’, ‘La Vie En Rose’ and my favourite of all ‘Brief Encounter’.
In 2014, me and my wife went away for a few days for our wedding anniversary. On one of the days we visited the village of Carnforth. More especially Carnforth railway station. This was the location for a number of scenes in Brief Encounter and it was a place I had always wanted to visit. The old station has been restored to it’s former glory and was a great trip back in time. These are few of the pictures from that visit.
An interesting twist to this is that the male lead in Brief Encounter was Trevor Howard, who was the brother of Leslie Howard who played Ashley Wilkes in Gone With The Wind!
