Ground Rope Day

Whilst working with 'Tush' Hamilton on his book Still Alive and Still Kicking, he wanted to demonstrate to us how to make a ground rope. We all felt this would be an important addition to the archive and is a dying art and soon there may be nobody left who remembered making a ground rope in this way. So Tush gathered some fishermen to help us and we made this film on a very cold, drizzly day on Rock-a-Nore beach in Feb 2016.
