Wincanton provides the water for Snow White

Wincanton has been providing truckloads of water for the cast and crew of a new Hollywood film, Snow White and the Huntsman, during filming at Marloes Sands near Milford Haven.

The film is described as a dark take on the traditional folk-tale and stars Twilight actress Kristen Stewart and oscar-winner Charlize Theron.

“For the last few years we have built a reputation as the leading water provider to outdoor events,” said Claire Charlton, business development manager at Wincanton.

Wincanton had to use a smaller tanker than normal to get water to get around the fim set at the remote coastline location. And a driver had to be based near the filming location to respond to changes in demand.

“The water we deliver will obviously be there for the welfare of the crew but, just as importantly, several of the scenes involve huge running battles with up to 50 riders on horseback, so all of those horses will need access to fresh clean water throughout the production,” said Charlton.

Wincanton also provided water for Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood film, which was also shot in Pembrokeshire.
