Heronsdale Manor Harvest 1942

3 mins United Kingdom

This delightful colour film from 1942 starts with bucolic scenes of farm labourers stacking sheaves of hay that are created by a reaper-binding machine working in the background. By way of contrast, we next see a squadron of Hurricanes flying overhead. Also seen are what might be young evacuees, helping with the harvest and picnicking in a hay-cart. Other farming tasks are also seen such as ploughing, drilling and sowing.
