The Humber is a mighty body of water where the silty tides run at up to six knots. But not all the time. At high tide it becomes a placid lake fifteen miles long and three wide. At low tid, beyond the bridge, it braids into scores of shallow channels that sparkle in the low winter light.
The Humber is also famous for the dense caprice of its rolling fog banks which can engulf you within minutes of appearing. Bright sunshine one second – visibility down to a few yards the next.
I spent a lovely winter on the Humber, long nights, cold days… just the boat and the overwintering birds.
Beyond the Bridge is 26 minutes long and was filmed entirely between the Humber Bridge and Trent Falls during the winter of 2011/12.
