The nine-day shoot for clothing, homewares and accessories took place in a host of locations including High Street, Church Street, Victoria Street and East Green, as well as the pier and Southwold beach.

Sarah Charrington, on-set producer for Lucy Watson Productions which carried out the shoot, said: “From a creative point of view, of course the light is very beautiful and the beach is lovely.

“Here, the production shot on a beautiful variety of streetscapes, in a private location house, on the beach and on the common – each literally a short walk away from the other. “

The visit has helped boost local firms including hotels, bakeries, caterers and taxi firms.
