    This is not in Stewartry, Dumfries and Galloway.
    It is in Stewartby, Bedfordshire
    I am Stewartby's Borough Councillor.

    I agree with the previous correspondent that this film is not in the Stewartry .
    I have lived here for more than 60 years and the location is not recognised.
    Your file name should be changed to reflect the correct address given by the Stewartby borough councillor.
