This unnamed village looks almost too quaint to be true, with its cycling postman, ambling cows, ducklings, shire horses and piglets. The film may feature more than one village - perhaps it was made to sing the praises of village life in general, rather than as a record of a particular place? The film was made by Matthew Nathan, a prolific and prize-winning amateur filmmaker.
