The Amish Teenagers © Channel 4

A four-part documentary granting rare access to a group of young Amish as they leave their closed communities in mid-west USA for the first time and travel to Britain.

Production Company: KEO films
Kent Filming Locations: Rochester town centre, Joss Bay, Margate and Folkestone.

This documentary observes an extraordinary cultural exchange and follows five Amish young people as they leave their strictly sheltered lives to experience the outside world through a rite of passage called ‘Rumspringa’, which usually begins at the age of 16 and lasts as long as the teenager needs, before full baptism into the Amish Church.

This group has decided to travel to Britain where the five Amish youngsters live with groups ranging from London street dancers to castle-dwelling aristocrats. They hope to share their clean-living values with their British counterparts as well as learning and understanding what British teenage life is all about.

The programme includes scenes filmed in Rochester town centre, Joss Bay, Margate and Folkestone.

The historic city of Rochester has beautiful cobbled streets, parks and the Cathedral and castle. Rochester has previously been seen on screen in Jekyll and Hyde (2015), Great British Railway Journeys (2014) and Great Expectations feature film (1989).

In Thanet, Joss Bay is a 200-metre sandy beach in Broadstairs whilst Margate is a vibrant seaside resort, with complementary historic and modern architecture. The Thanet area is popular for filming having been used for projects such as  The Carer (2016), The Lady in the Van (2015) and The Great British Bake Off (2014).

Folkestone is a seaside town which boasts an elegant clifftop promenade, a coastal park, fishing harbour and Victorian cliff-top lifts. It has featured in productions The Tunnel: Sabotage (2016), Is Anybody There? (2009) and Moon and Son (1992).

The Kent episode of Amish: World’s Squarest Teenagers will be shown on Channel 4 at 8pm on 1st August 2010
