"I am intrigued by this man, about his love of rural Norfolk, his hatred of the gentry and his thrill at poaching. I would like to tell you the story of my search for Fred." Charlotte Paton

I Walked By Night is a much-loved rural classic first published in the 1930s.

But what is the reality behind Frederick Rolfe's account of his life as "King of the Norfolk Poachers"?

Charlotte Paton suspected that her cottage had been Fred's home in 1894, when he became poacher-turned-gamekeeper. She had to find out more.

This beautiful and evocative film follows Charoltte's search through local records, lost manuscripts, and intriguing interviews that uncover dramatic memories of Fred's life and times.

Join Fred's first court appearance, find out just why he described poaching as "somethin' like drug taking", and see 21st century rat-catcher Steve Caple demonstrate poacher techniques.

Full of fascinating insights into our rural past, family history research and poaching, this modern day detective story grips from start to finish.
