Autumn in Delamere
The Jewish school in the forest - a healthy approach to learning in the Cheshire countryside.
From the collection of:
The Delamere Forest School was established in Cheshire in 1921 by philanthropist Margaret Langdon for the education of delicate Jewish children. In this peaceful rural setting, the pupils could learn, play and thrive out in the fresh air, and in this delightful colour film we see them follow a routine of lessons and religious observance, as well as painting, sport and gardening, and exploring the pine forest around the school. The original school closed in 2010.
