Delamere Forest is one of the glories of rural Cheshire, so join talented amateur filmmaker Ernest Hart with his family - and their dog - on their expeditions into the depths of the woodland. Whether picnicking, tree climbing, play fighting in the ferns, or trying a spot of acrobatics, there is plenty here to keep daughter Norma and the rest of the family entertained.
