Happy 10th birthday Tyntesfield

In August 2012, it was the 10th anniversary of the National Trust saving Tyntesfield for the nation. This short film was made by Creative and Media Diploma students from Backwell School to celebrate all that has been achieved by volunteers, staff, contractors and our community in that time.

It was completed in under two weeks and many thanks to all the staff and volunteers featured and to the students for all their hard work... and happy birthday Tyntesfield.
