'To Stay and To Serve: Life on Wigton's Homefront' is a short documentary drama film about the development of the health and social services in Wigton up to the end of World War One. The film was produced by NADT (North Allerdale Development Trust) as part of a research and exhibition project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The project involved a core community group who researched the effects that previous national military conflicts had on the people of Wigton. From that research, a short film script was developed. Of Wright Walker Productions, Lyndsey Walker directed the film, working with Jonathan Wright as Director of Photography.
