An aerial of striking marshland at Tollesbury Marina in Essex is used at the beginning of the programme, which centres on an allegation of rape. The opening scene of the first episode also saw lead character Laura canoeing through the marshes, which are at the mouth of the River Blackwater.
Now the village and marina have been attracting visitors from across Britain, who are keen to see the stunning location for themselves.
“We’ve had a lot more tourists than usual arriving since the start of the series in September,” said a worker at The Harbour View bistro and bar, based at the marina. “Lots of visitors have been telling us that they have come to explore the area after seeing it on television.”
Tollesbury Marina is 12 miles south of Colchester and nestles into the surroundings between the Saltings and the Sea. The main trade and export of Tollesbury, which still thrives to this day, is oysters.
