Arthur Conan Doyle Relaxes with His Family at Windlesham 1929

16 mins United Kingdom

This unique and charming film from the 1920s begins with Arthur Conan Doyle walking with members of his family around Windlesham Manor, East Sussex. He plays with a terrier and practises his golf putts. We then see holiday scenes in Egypt before returning to the Sir John Barleymow pub in Hampshire. Scenes aboard the liner Aquitania are followed by footage in Brisbane, Australia. The Victoria Falls are also seen before the film returns to Windlesham Manor.

At Wessex Film and Sound Archive you can see and hear history, from late Victorian times to the present day, through moving images and sound recordings. The Archive contains over 36,000 film and sound recordings relating to Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, including film and tapes of local TV and radio.
