Keepers is an experimental documentary film drawing attention to the historical and contemporary ‘keepers’ of Lyme.

For centuries there have been keepers working to take care of Lyme: gamekeepers, housekeepers, head keepers, timekeepers. The keepers are the custodians of stories, anecdotes and gossip, theirs and others, sometimes partial, sometimes complete – a living layer across the landscape.

The film will be shown in the Still Room at Lyme each day, 11am to 4.30pm, from the 16 September – 26 October 2016.

This project was commissioned through Trust New Art, The National Trust’s programme of contemporary arts.

Supported by Arts Council England.
