A de-mobbed soldier returns home to his native Suffolk to find his family’s boat-building business in decline. Can his yacht designs save the day and breathe new life into the venerable King’s Yard?
Made on a shoestring budget, Ha’Penny Breeze is a charming snapshot of post-war Britain and a real find for anyone that knows and loves the Orwell. Filmed on location in Pin Mill in 1950, it captures the bleak charm of the Suffolk foreshore and the feel of the post-war yachting scene.
Pin Mill’s famous Butt and Oyster pub features heavily of course, and it’s remarkable how little it, and the village as a whole, has changed.
The film’s nail-biting finale is a race between a local gaffer and a hot-shot racer’s Bermudan sloop that will determine the fortunes of the whole village.
A real gem of a film for a rainy Sunday!
