Lyme Regis was once again the chosen location for filming yesterday.

TV presenter Kate Humble, who specialises in wildlife and science programmes, was in the town with a film crew and paid a visit to the town mill and Lyme Regis Brewery.

Petrina Muscroft of Lyme Regis Town Mill said: "She is filming for Channel 5, which is going to go out in October I believe, and it’s a walk from Charmouth to Beer and she’s stopping at points of interest along the way.

"It’s the brewery they contacted initially and the brewery and us are doing an experiment, we are not milling their barley because it would be too thin, but we are splitting it.

"We took Kate into the mill with Wes, one of the directors of the brewery, and we had a volunteer miller in and using stones and the waterwheel, we cracked the barely and then she went back to the brewery and did a mini brew.

"It's really a mill complex as opposed to just the mill, we are so much more than just a mill.

"The disappointing thing for our visitors at the moment is that we are not letting anybody into the mill because we are still figuring out how we can do that safely, so she was a very special visitor yesterday with hand sanitiser stations and distancing."

The town has been regularly chosen to star in films and documentaries. The RNLI based its Christmas film on the lifeboat station and crew in the town and the BBC Saving Lives at Sea used footage of the crew's dramatic rescue of two teenage boys in Axmouth. The town was taken over by a film crew and set last year for the filming of 'Ammonite', a film based on the life of Mary Anning and featuring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan.
